Raksha Bandhan

Raksha Bandhan celebrates the bond of affection between brothers and sisters. The name ‘Raksha Bandhan’ refers to ‘a bond of protection’. On this day, brothers make a promise to their sisters to protect them from all harm and sisters pray to God to protect their brother from all evil. This one day festival generally falls in the month of August.

Sisters do a small puja for their brothers, and tie a colourful and often 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!
