Raksha Bandhan is an auspicious occasion of Hinduism. Raksha means ‘protection’ and Bandhan means ‘to tie’. On this day, sisters tie a sacred thread called ‘Rakhi’ around their brother’s wrists. It is the symbol of love and commitment between siblings. It strengthens the ‘brothers-sisters’ relationship. At this propitious moment, the brothers promise to protect their sisters in any circumstance of life. It is one of the significant festivals in India celebrated in almost all states.
This ancient occasion is considered sacred and lucky. A week before, a lot of preparation starts for the celebration. Sisters choose and buy their favorite Rakhis for their brothers. Brothers also buy different gifts for their sisters. The houses are decorated and illuminated by candles and lights. Sisters arrange desired menus of their brothers. The rituals start early in the morning with ‘Diya’, ‘roli’, sweets, ‘rice grains’, and ‘Rakhis’. Home-made sweets are kept on a plate and sisters feed their brothers after knotting the thread on their brother’s wrists to maintain the sweet relationship for a lifetime.
From far places, brothers come to meet their sisters on this day. Sometimes Indian Railway arranges special trains on this day to ease travelling difficulties. Even rakhis are sent to brothers who live far away from their homes and cannot attend the festivity. The postal department designs designer envelopes at low cost to value the significance of the day. The whole country overflows with joy, love, and a festive mood.
Today it’s not a festivity for siblings only. It is celebrated among friends, sisters, brothers, and colleagues to strengthen the harmony and love of a relationship. In every nook and corner of cities and towns, stalls and shops are shown selling different types of ‘Rakhis’ with colourful threads, beads, glasses, sequences, and glitters. Though there are many fables and myths in Indian history to describe the day, this generation celebrates it with real zest and modern styles.
