Rakhi is a sacred festival that stands for the eternal bond of love and affection and strengthens the spirit of brotherhood among siblings. According to the Hindu calendar, the festival of Rakhi falls on the fifth month which is called Shravana. As per the English calendar, it falls in between July-August and this actually corresponds with the Hindu calendar. This festival is also popular by the name 'Rakhi Purnima' as it falls on the full moon day. This year, Rakhi will be celebrated on 29th August.


On this auspicious day, sisters tie beautiful thread called Rakhi or Raksha, which is a symbol of protection, on the wrist of their brothers. The red tilak which the sisters apply on their brother's forehead signifies her unconditional love and affection attached with him. Brothers also recognize the bonding of love and by extending hand towards sisters. They also promise them to protect from all difficult situations and adversaries of life. This Rakhi ceremony is followed with exchange of Rakhi gifts wrapped with love and lots of sentiments.

The origination of Raksha Bandhan can be traced back to the ancient period. The age old scriptures embarked the practice of tying Rakhi knots in the Hindu mythological legends mainly to the Lord Indra, the King of Heavens. In the vedic period, during a war Lord Indra fall to the power of his opponent, Demons. Worried over the outcome of war, Indra got advised by Brihaspati Guru. Following his advise, Indra's wife Indrani tied a talisman on Indra's wrist. This reversed the war situation and Indra defeated demons. This talisman safeguarded him from all dangers, therefore it was referred as 'Raksha Sutra' and the whole ceremony of tying talisman by Indrani to his husband was named as Raksha Bandhan.

The festivities of Raksha Bandhan start by the day break. People get ready and gather at a common place for the worship of God. After the completion of puja, sisters perform the rituals of rakhi festivals. She ties rakhi on the wrist of her brother, perform aarti, put tilak and rice particles on his forehead amid chanting of mantras. Then she offers him sweets and gifts. The brother accepts her offerings and promise to protect her and stand by her whenever she need him. He also give her a return gift as a token. It is believed that when a woman ties a rakhi around the hand of a man it becomes mandatory for him to honour his religious duty and protect her.
