Manyavar celebrates the special occasion of Raksha Bandhan with their heart-warming #RakhiKaBroCode campaign. The much-cherished occasion between siblings is a promise of love that never fades away. This year, dress up in a cool and colourful celebratory kurta from Manyavar and make this Raksha Bandhan deeply special by surprising your sister with being festive-ready in Indian wear!
The two films depict the daily banter and instances between brother and sister duos, which is full of love. The sisters are frowning at their brothers for not being ready in Indian wear to celebrate the occasion. The brothers then get ready by donning a Manyavar kurta to celebrate the festivity of Rakhi.
Cadbury Celebrations announced the launch of a heart-warming campaign for this year’s Raksha Bandhan – #ConnectedRakhi. To usher siblings to make good on the promise of spending the festival together, the brand has introduced Bluetooth enabled #ConnectedRakhi; an innovation that taps into the user’s emotion and blends it perfectly with the brand’s tech-first endeavor.
Scan the QR code available on the packaging of the #ConnectedRakhi to download the app which requires a basic sign up. This will be followed by sisters uploading a voice clip of their brother’s promise. The sister then ties the connected Rakhi on the brother’s arm paired with her phone. If the brother moves away from her or tries to leave, her phone plays the brother’s audio recording where he promised to spend the day with her, in loop, until he comes back to her.
FlowerAura launched the campaign as a gratitude for the unsung heroes who make our everyday lives so much easier and safe. The idea was to go beyond the traditional approach of “Raksha Bandhan” and celebrate some unique bonds, our brothers by choice that make our life so special.
This Ad is beautifully crafted with a hidden idea to not just restrict the celebration of rakhi to our nearest relative and to commemorate the special relationship we have with the brothers and sisters of our choice.

The campaign expresses the special bond between siblings no matter what at any cost stands by each other.
The campaign talks about the sister gifting a card to the brother explaining it to be a testimony of how her brother stood for her at the time she needed him the most. It is a classic example of how Indian households function and parents still feel sceptical about making the daughters leave at night whilst the same rule doesn’t apply to the brothers and sons, but the fact that having a sibling to always cover up and bridge the gap makes the experience of life and a family wholesome.
