Since her stories have gone viral, Sarwat Gilani has received a lot of backlashes. In her stories, she attempts to make her Hindu cook feel safe in her Pakistani home by commemorating a Raksha Bandhan ritual.  

Raksha Bandhan

The Hindu community commemorates the day of Raksha Bandhan. The women in the household put a colorful band around the wrists of the men, whom they refer to as brothers or ‘bhaiya.’  This gathering is for sisters to honor and cherish their brothers as protectors. Ganaish, Sarwat Gilani’s cook, appears to be a Hindu who has relocated to Pakistan.
