Raksha Bandhan is a festival observed to pay homage to the sacred and unconditional bond between brothers and sisters. It’s an ancient Vedic festival which is celebrated every year on the full moon day of the month of Shravan (August).
On this festival, as a ritual, a sister ties a colorful rakhi, a sacred thread that symbolizes love between siblings, around her brother’s wrist. The festival starts by performing traditional aarti and concludes with prayers. Moreover, as a part of tradition, a brother presents his sister varied exciting gifts and vows to guide and protect her throughout the life. Gifts play a prominent role and symbolize tokens of love and affection.
Rakhi is a symbol of love that brings men and women together, bridging religious/caste fault lines.When a Rakhi is tied on the wrists of close friends and neighbors, it underscores the need for a harmonious social life, in which individuals co-exist peacefully as brothers and sisters. All members of the community commit to protecting one another and the society in such congregational Rakhi Utsavs, popularized by the Nobel laureate Bengali poet, Rabindranath Tagore.
