The bond between a brother and sister is never-ending. From childhood to adulthood, they are connected for the most part by a bond that is more intense and close than either of them may realize. The love between them is not necessarily always expressed, but it is one that is rooted in shared experiences and common interests and feelings.
Siblings carry a special place in our hearts and lives. No matter how many times you snatch each other's favourite things, fight over the television remote or curse each other out of anger, at the end of the day you all know you can’t survive without talking to each other. Words always fall short to describe the unique bond between a brother and sister. However, the Raksha Bandhan festival is dedicated to celebrating this bond.
Raksha Bandhan is a Hindu festival that is celebrated in the month of Ashadha (August), which is the last month of the Hindu year. The celebration of Raksha Bandhan falls in the month of Shravana of the Hindu lunar calendar, which corresponds to August in the Gregorian calendar. It is a time to bond with family, friends, and community.
Traditionally during Raksha Bandhan families get together for a celebration. The celebration is done by sisters tying a sacred thread, rakhi to their brother's hand. In exchange for that, they receive a unique gift or gift hamper as a token of love and blessing from their brothers. Nowadays, there are amazing gift ideas for Raksha bandhan available online.
