A Special Rakhi Gift

Rakhi Gift

Rakshabandhan is around the corner and many of you are probably thinking about the gifts you are going to give to your lovely sisters. The chocolate boxes or pendants are too main stream; why not choose something more unorthodox this time? How about a health insurance plan?

This festival is celebrated to strengthen brother-sister relationship and the brother vows to protect his sister whenever possible. What could be the better and more practical way to fulfill this promise than getting a Health Insurance for her? A health insurance plan provides a ready financial backup to meet medical expenses in a hospital. A person can fall sick or get injured any time. Being a brother it is not very practical for you to save your sister from getting sick but you can certainly arrange for timely treatment.

This would be the more useful gift that you would be giving to your sister than some fancy item. I got this idea when my maternal uncle gifted a health cover to my mother last Rakshabandhan. And you may call it a co-incidence that she actually got to use it the same year as she contracted typhoid last December and had to stay in a hospital for four days. The bill of INR 70K was paid cashless by the insurance company.

A health insurance plan would provide long Term utility and as a gift it would be a very thoughtful one. It would imply how much you care for her. It is a perfect chance to deepen your bonding with your sister. You won’t want anything to happen to her, do you?

Start comparing health plans online to get the best rates and attractive features in the plan. Do it online for better comparison and transparent transaction. You may also explore other insurance plans that could be gifted to your sister. Some life insurance plans like a term plan or a ULIP could be good options as well. You may take consultation from an insurance advisor to get more information on the same.

The whole idea behind this discussion is to give her something that has lasting importance. These gifts may not look very glittery from the outside but has much better utility than conventional gifts. These gifts match perfectly with the Rakshabandhan theme as they actually provide protection to your sister in the most desperate times of life. So be a good brother and start your plan comparison. Surprise your sister with a gift she least expects from you. Wish you a very happy Rakshabandhan!!!
