Description

Raksha Bandhan, also known as Rakhi, is a Hindu festival that celebrates the bond of love and protection between siblings, particularly between brothers and sisters. It is observed on the full moon day of the Hindu month of Shravana, which usually falls in August.

The term "Raksha Bandhan" can be translated to "the bond of protection." During this festival, sisters tie a decorative thread or bracelet called a "rakhi" around their brothers' wrists as a symbol of their love, care, and protection. In return, brothers offer gifts and sometimes a promise to protect their sisters throughout their lives. The rakhi is not just a physical thread; it carries emotional significance, signifying the sacred connection between siblings.

The festival goes beyond the immediate family, as it also represents the broader concept of unity, harmony, and mutual respect in society. Raksha Bandhan emphasizes the idea of duty and responsibility towards each other. It's a celebration of the unique and special bond shared between siblings, regardless of age, and a reaffirmation of the values of love, trust, and support.
