2020 has been an unusual year but even then, nothing can kill the grandeur of Indian festivals. India celebrates a myriad of festivals and there’s not one celebration that’s not flamboyant.

And for that, we’ve curated a list of distinctive rakhis you can get your hands on, that will let you add customisations and personalised touches and surely make the celebrations more special!
