India celebrates various festivals such as Makar Sankranti, Baisakhi, Ganesh festival, Diwali, Navratri, New Year and many more with so much zeal and enthusiasm. Raksha Bandhan is also celebrated with the same excitement.
Each culture has its festivals throughout the year. But Raksha Bandhan is a festival that is celebrated by people of different cultures. It is the festival of siblings and symbolises unconditional love and the bond between the brother and the sister.
A] Importance of Raksha Bandhan
Have you ever thought about why sisters tie a rakhi? It is a sacred thread that a sister ties for good luck, love, happiness and success throughout the year. The brother also gifts to his sister as soon as she ties the rakhi. This works both ways.
Does this gift given by the brother have any meaning? Or is it just a barter system? The brother gives a promise to his sister in the form of gifts. The brother’s gift is a promise to protect his sister at all costs and wish her good luck and happiness. The word Raksha Bandhan itself means the bond of protection.
In some areas, not only the sister ties rakhi but aunts tie rakhis to their nephews or nieces to save them from the evil eye and wish them happiness and success. There are many rakhi designs such as simple threads, beads, stones, cloth rakhis, bracelets, bands etc. Let us explore various other exclusive options of rakhis.
