Raksha Bandhan: It is the festival, which is nothing less than some of the grand celebrations in Hindu Religion. Today, across the globe, it is celebrated to cherish the unconditional loving relationship between sisters and brothers. It is celebrated on the Purnima of Shravan Mas as per Hindu Calender. Therefore, it is sometimes called Shavani also. The festival has very deep roots in ancient Indian mythology. Goddess Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth, had tied rakhi to mighty demon king Raja Bali on this day and in return, Raja Bali had relieved God Vishnu, her husband, who was in his custody. Likewise, king Alexander’s wife tied the rakhi to his enemy called King Puru and in return, King Puru has promised her that he will not harm her husband during battle. Raksha Bandhan is meant a lot in relation of brother and sister.
Rakhi: It is a simple thread which is tied by sister on the right hand wrist of her brother. To make rituals complete, sister makes “Tilak” on the forehead of her brother first along with kumkum and rice before tying rakhi. Once it is done, both brother and sister offer sweets to each other’s mouth as a token of joy and happiness and both pray to God for well being of each other. In return, brother gifts something to his sister. There are many forms and varieties of traditional rakhi, like simple thread, resham rakhi, beads rakhi, etc. Sometimes it is prepared with precious metals like gold or silver along with precious stones. Some rachis are having music associated with it, some has beautiful fragrance associated with it. Some are prepared from zari or some are prepared from flowers.
