The beauty of India is magnified by various festivals celebrated on its soil. Rakshabandhan is one such prominent festival that sends a message of eternal bond between brothers and sisters,and is celebrated mostly in every nook and corner of the country.
Rakshabandhan is celebrated by tying an auspicious thread to the brother’s wrist by the sister as a symbol of protection against any evil influence. In return, the sisters receive a variety of gifts, goodies, cash and a promise from their brothers to protect them from all harms.
This one day festival generally falls in the month of August. Sisters do a small puja for their brothers and tie a colourful and ornately decorated thread called a rakhi on their wrist. Brothers on their part must pledge to look after their sisters till their dying breath and sweeten the deal with a gift of some kind. People dress up in fine clothes mostly traditional ones and eat traditional sweets during this festival.
The rites and rituals followed on this festival and the enthusiasm, faith that are constant features of this festivity add to the charm of the celebration. Rakshabandhan may come once in a year, but the emotions it evokes last for much longer. The sweet gestures strengthen love between the two. Tying a beautifully crafted rakhi by the sister to her brother’s wrist can easily revive the special moments shared by both of them.
