Raksha Bandhan is a very auspicious festival of India that is celebrated all over the world. This festival represents the bond between the sibling’s relationships. It is celebrated among the cousins, sister, fraternal aunt, sister-in-law, nephew, and niece. Every year on the full moon day of the Shravan month according to the Hindu lunisolar calendar (also known as Shravan Purnima), this festival is celebrated.
The word “Raksha” signifies protection and “Bandhan” signifies a knot. According to the Sanskrit terminology, this festival means “to tie or knot of protection”. The sisters apply roli teeka and akshara on her brother’s forehead and tie a rakhi on his wrist, do aarti, give sweets to them and pray for his good health, wealth, prosperity and better well-being and in return, brother promises to protect her from any kind of harm and to be there with her in any circumstance.
