Back in the day, people didn’t have any access to technology and as a result, things we find simple to do today, were not quite so. For example, back in the day, if you wanted to send a Rakhi to your brother in another city, you’d first have to run down to a local market that’s selling Rakhi’s and other Raksha Bandhan gifts. After you’ve selected the Rakhi you want, you’d then run down to the local courier who would then have your Rakhi sent to it’s expected destination. The problem with all of that, is that it involves quite a lot of manual effort. So much so that it could take up your entire day and maybe more if you’re out of luck.
What about now though? Just how much easier is it to send Rakhi’s to other cities within India using technology like the internet?
Well, it’s certainly quite a bit easier than what had to be done in the past! These days, multiple e-commerce brands have set up websites to sell products. Initially, it started with clothing brands and consumer product brands but soon, companies selling products related to our culture, tradition and religion slowly chimed in.
Nowadays, you have an endless list of religion and festival-based e-commerce sites to pick your products from. Featuring a never-ending list of products that include puja samagri’s, god idols and more, these sites can help you find just what you need for the cost you’re willing to pay. Plus, all of them have a delivery service that can have the products you choose, sent right to your doorstep. All it takes is a few clicks of a button and your Rakhi is on its way!
The best part about online Rakhi delivery in India is the fact that you can reach corners of the country that were previously impossible to get to. This is partly to do with development in terms of connecting roads and transport services, as well as online stores that have tied up with delivery services to make it all possible. Net result? Convenience like never before!
Only one thing has become an issue as time has gone on… and that “thing” is the sheer number options available … We now have access to never ending pages of products on multiple different sites. This makes choosing the right Rakhi or gift, rather difficult and time consuming.
If you’re really picky, or have a brother that’s really picky, I’d suggest beginning your search well before the auspicious day of Raksha Bandhan. That way, you can have your Rakhi sent in time so that unexpected delays don’t affect your celebrations. In the end, the sheer number of Rakhi’s being delivered within in India can definitely be subject to some sort of delay. So, it’s better to be safe than sorry!
Anyway, I’m going to conclude by saying all of us definitely need to take advantage of online Rakhi delivery services within India as these festivals help us get closer to our family, even if they reside in a different city.
