Raksha Bandhan – Day For Brothers and Sisters
Relationships have always been considered as an integral package of every individual’s life. Time passes by, but certain bonds are for life. Especially, when it comes immersing into the cultural sea of India, eternal bonds are celebrated in a very special way. One such occasion which rejoices each minute of those blessed bonds is the event of Raksha bandhan, which is a sentiment of a lifetime link between a brother and sister.
On this celebrated day, the sister ties a thread, known as ‘Rakhi’ across her brother’s wrist indicating her wishes and blessings for her brother’s well-being and good health. In return, the brother would gift something to his sister as a token of love and appreciation. This festival brings a lot of joy and merry into people’s lives, and with the passage of time, the celebration has become far more Grande and awaited yearlong because of its excitement of gifting and sharing.
In countries like India, Nepal, Mauritius, and Pakistan, the holy relationship between a brother and a sister is honoured and celebrated with the festival of Raksha Bandhan.
This festival had its inception from the Mughal Era, during which Emperor Humayun shared a brother-sister bond with the Queen of Chittoor Rani Karnavati. This bond was formed when Queen Rani Karnavato sent across a Rakhi to Humayun seeking help and brotherhood.
