People celebrated Raksha Bandhan – the bond of love between brother and sister.
There is probably no other bond half as beautiful and unique as the one shared between a brother and sister.
They may fight with each other over the tiniest of thing but they will also fight the world for each other.
Even though you will almost never find a brother-sister duo without their constant bickering, the siblings are known to make a powerful team together. The loyalty and deep-rooted understanding between the two is considered one of the strongest social forces in the world.
Raksha Bandhan is the inimitable bond between a brother and her sister.
As they grow older together, siblings often become each other’s confidants and often develop a language entirely of their own– one not to be deciphered by the elders in the family.
To celebrate this inimitable bond between a brother and her sister, the festival of Raksha Bandhan. It is celebrated in India, with full zest and enthusiasm every year.
Rakhi is the festival to protect the bond love between brother and sister.
Rakhi is a Hindu festival which is celebrated on the last day of the Hindu Lunar calendar month of Sharavana across the country.
The word “Raksha” means protection in Sanskrit and the word “Bandhan” means a bond, essentially translating this festival to the bond of protection, love and commitment between a brother and his sister.
Rakhi on the wrist of the brother acts as a reminder for him to protect and honour his family.
On this day, brothers and sisters get decked up, and sisters tie ‘Rakhi’ (a sacred thread) to their brother’s hand, which signifies brotherly love and devotion. It is believed that tying Rakhi on the wrist of the brother acts as a reminder for him to protect and honour his family.
