Is it going to be too late when you look at the advertisement and hoardings on the road or announcement on the F.M.? .These advertisement clearing depicting sister tying Rakhi to brother and ringing an alarm for you to send Rakhi for your bother .This advertisements are usually on display only week to ten days before Rakhi. Especially when your brother is living abroad, sending Rakhi could be a minimum one week affair. So like every year you shall be at the cutting edge of time and keep speculating if you’re Rakhi shall reach on the time to your brother if you send it late .Your poor brother like every Rakhi Festival keeps waiting on the hope that you shall send him some nice Rakhi online with Rakhi Gifts in time.
But you procrastinate too much and take it easy or in fact too much confident that you shall send it online any time you wish even before a week and able to manage it well. To Send Rakhi online has always been not been as easy this way as you ever thought of .Because you have never thought of the unexpected situation on the day you plan and send Rakhi to Dubai or London to your brother when you are at home with full plan to enjoy your holiday .Suppose on that day your mobile network is down due to some reasons or your internet is slow or not working at all or you forgot your one time password for online payment.
Now you are in a precarious situation and do not know really what to do now .Going to a neighbours place and asking for a favour, which you have never liked, is always a difficult job to do .You clearly know that you’re asking for a favour which shall clearly be politely refused with the stupid or valid reason that my Mom is not at home or my PC or Internet is not working too. Now what you shall do, running to Internet cafe or rush to local market for buying Rakhi for your brother.
Being late ,going to internet cafe does not seem to help you much as cut off dates of delivering Rakhis are almost over on all the Rakhi selling websites so they cannot guarantee delivery before Rakhi.
Problem is still not over .Parking your car in a shopping Mall or a local market is not easy .Further buying Rakhi alone is not going to sort the issue .So as a last measure you need to rush to local market .To add to your disappointment, as you are already late, excellent stock of handpicked Rakhi is nearly finished so you are in compromising mode .All this end up buying Rakhi not of your choice for your brother.
Next agenda is to send Rakhi to London or Dubai to your brother from a reliable courier.
Earlier you thought you are smart enough to enjoy your weekend but it now seems a remote possibility as your half day is nearly over and still you are for a look out of a trusted courier and you have got barely four to five days left for Rakhi Delivery.
Again a marathon search for a courier begins, hunting for a best courier who can send Rakhi like a flash. You are able to find the best and most trusted courier now but that too with a 50:50 assurance that they may or may not deliver Rakhi with Rakhi Gifts on Rakhi Day .Your fresh calculation begins now if Rakhi is on 13th August then you have an extra one day to send it as USA is 12 hours behind so there is a fair chance Rakhi shall reach on Rakhi Day .There is a temporary smile on your face but again it but it fades as Rakhi day is going to be Sunday this year and there are no deliveries on Sunday in USA .This happens with all English speaking Countries barring UAE that they do not deliver on Sunday and Holidays. So you have no other option but to beg to courier guy to mark the courier as urgent and deliver it on Rakhi Day as a last hope.
Once you book the Rakhi ,now comes the tracking part .You are mentally engaged for all four to five days ,day and night to find the location of the Rakhi courier and pray to god for timely delivery till it finally reaches your brother .But by the time excitement of sending Rakhi is replaced by uncertainty and dejection .
Your Courier Company is not as heroic as shown in the movies .They just managed to get Rakhi delivered the very next day after Rakhi Day. Still I feel your courier guy has done a great job.
To summarize, did you ever realise that you ended up paying nearly the double amount had you paid to an online shopping website or sent Rakhi well before time plus wasting a full do for Rakhi for your brother Your brother deserves this but this was unwarranted .
If planned well before, you just needed to select a Rakhi online and a Rakhi Gift and in a single click, you had an order confirmation mail in your inbox and within hours a tracking details at your mail id. No more botheration for you to track it too. Someone else shall take of this very well from the website you ordered the Rakhi.
How easy it was for you to send Rakhi with ease online if ordered Rakhi earlier .With your debit or credit card ready, spending 5 to 10 minutes to select Rakhi and spending few more minutes to pay and your Rakhi shopping was over .So wake up this time and log onto to trusted website like indiangiftguru and send Rakhi to USA your brother in USA or other country.
But was that enough or you are still going to do the same mistake this year too?
Sorry for being bits harsh like your big bro.
