Rakshabandhan – The festival of Chaste love
Celebrated in the month of Shravan on a full moon day by the Indian populace across the globe, Rakshabandhan is an acknowledgement to the unflinching support and immense strength sisters receive from their beloved brothers. It is a day when a brother and sister pray for each others’ health, wealth and happiness. The Rakhi festival in its own beautiful and unique way also helps rub off minor dissensions in the weld formed in the heat of emotions joining two people, the brother - ‘bhai’ as he is called in Hindi, and his sister - ‘behna’ as she is called in Hindi. Rakshabandhan is not just a festival about the unblemished relationship between a brother and sister but also one that speaks volumes of the rich Indian tradition through the boundless love that reverberates in this country despite a zillion differences.
Rakhi – The Symbol of Chaste Love
A Rakhi, meaning ‘the bond of love’, is also a symbol of the profound love sisters have for their brothers. It is also manifestation of the countless blessings a sister showers selflessly on her brother. On this auspicious Rakshabandhan day, sisters tie the holy thread, Rakhi, on the wrist of their brothers and reinforce their faith in the basic philosophy behind Rakshabandhan – protect the weak from all that is evil. The brothers on their part take unsaid yet strong vows to protect their sisters through their thick and thin and pamper them with lots of Rakhi gifts. They also traditionally feed each other sweets, don graceful attires and spend the day in merriment.
