Every diwali, abdul and i burst crackers together. as a kid of 4, all he wants is to burst crackers with his friends in the apartment and celebrate diwali. every year, he tells me, "ammi, let's go and burst crackers".
with excitement and enthusiasm filled eyes, he holds my hand and takes me to the terrace with a packet of crackers and a few candles to light. he always lights the candles and brightens up our terrace along with everyone else. so, it’s my duty as his mother to be his rakshakarta and keep him safe around fire, to take care of him not just during diwali, but every day of the year.
this is the story of rukshana and her son abdul and how they celebrate diwali every year with love and care. do you stand beside your loved ones in every situation? share your #storiesofrakshskaran with @tataaialifeofficial #rakshakarankireet .

When i was young, my parents used to take me to the temple every sunday, to get the blessings of the elephant god or ganesh ji. they believed that he will protect me from all the extremities of life and take care of my happiness and growth.
today, after being a mother, i have kept our family tradition alive. i follow the same sunday ritual with my son as my parents used to, with me. his happiness and well-being are the most important things to me and i am ready to go to all lengths to protect him. just like my parents, i am the rakshakarta of my son!

In december 2017, i felt that i got the best blessing of my life. we found out that we were expecting our first baby. however, in july, the next year, i realized that there was something better. when i held my baby boy for the first time, a feeling of pride and happiness engulfed me, a blessing that till date has been the biggest one of my life. as i was holding him, i knew i held the entirety of my being, a living proof of goodness and love. tears of joy rolled down by cheeks and i was left speechless. at that moment, i realized what motherhood is. it is a vow to love and protect your baby, your responsibility and a piece of your heart forever. he made me his rakshak for life, in turn being mine by bringing me joy that i didn't knew exist before.
here is ankita gogoi's story of motherhood and how holding her baby for the first made her realize that rakshakaran is a reet that she has vowed to perform for him, not just today but forever. do you have similar #storiesofrakshakaran? share them with @tataaialifeofficial and uphold your vow of love and protection.
