Numerous state governments have launched programs to make Raksha Bandhan celebrations more accessible to women. Shivraj Singh Chouhan, the chief minister of Madhya Pradesh, has revealed preparations for an unusual event. On August 27, as part of the Raksha Bandhan holiday, he hopes to speak with women and give them gifts.
Raksha Bandhan, which honors the close relationships shared by siblings, happens on the Poornima Tithi of Shravan Maas. Rakhis are traditionally tied around the wrists of brothers by their sisters in an effort to ensure their health and life.
The Raksha Bandhan event includes a variety of traditions. The sister leads her brother’s aarti on this special day and prays for his wellbeing. She then puts a tilak on his forehead, binds a Rakhi around his wrist, and gives him candy. Brothers show their sisters their affection by giving them presents or cash.
