Come out and party with DJ Wasabi @ Insomnia!

300x300Everyone knows that Friday is for suckers and that Saturday night is Mauritius’s true “going out” night. But where to go?

Let me introduce a candidate: this Saturday, one of Aussieland’s finest DJ, DJ Wasabi, will get behind the decks at Insomina, Grand-Bay. It’ll be a night of good tunes, sick beats, and lots of vinyl scratching.

DJ Wasabi has acquired quite a reputation and large following of fans throughout his 15 years behind the decks. DJ Wasabi was an ARIA award winner in 2004 for his turntable work on the Scared Weird Little Guys’ album, Bits and Pieces. Apparently, he enjoys : eating lollies, lighting and all things to do with lights, lasers etc, scratching, making beats, programming, and is nicknamed “smoke dog” a name he earned for his reputation of making turntables smoke with his hyper-charged scratching.

DJ Wasabi’s tunes will get you dancing and obnoxiously telling everyone around you how much you love this effing song. So come out to Insomnia on Saturday the 24th of August and help to put together a crazy set for this one and make it a huge ! Click on The Event more details.

Raksha Bandhan – The Thread Of Love

 

Rakhi

Raksha Bandhan is more than just a day where you pay to eat some delicious ladoos and get a wrist band – the rakhi.

It is a special day that marks the underlying love between a brother and a sister. Raksha Bandhan is a promise to protect and cherish forever the sacred bond that symbolizes this brother-sister relationship. This festival always revives the memories of my childhood and the bond shared between my great sisters and I. The stylish rakhis and the ladoos (oh my favorite desert) always carried me away into a wonderland of affection, adoration and the innocence – that only a brother-sister can endeavour, I think.

Rakhi Day – The facts

The full moon day in the month of Shravan of the traditional Hindu calendar is dedicated to the brother and sister relationship – The Rakhi Day. On that special day, sisters tie the thread of Rakhi on her brother’s wrist. Rakhi is a brothers promise to protect his sister from all negatives of life. It is also a amulet protecting the brother from all evils and is understood to bring in luck and prosperity in his life.

The rituals of Raksha Bandhan are not binding to brothers and sisters or members of a family alone and they transcend the confines of blood and familial relations as well. When a Rakhi is tied on the wrist of people close to you, it brings everyone closer so much so that everyone is the part of a secure social structure.

 Keep the tradition going!

Whether as a religious tradition or a family fun thing,  we should keep celebrating Raksha Bandhan this Tuesday the 20th of August; through a thread that binds and amazing ladoos or even Ferrero Rocher for the modern ones. For those who do not have brothers, tied a Rakhi on the wrist of your favourite cousin or friend. For those whose brothers live in far-off lands, find a way to show that you are thinking of them on that special day. And brothers have your cash ready!
