The only day in 365 days when sisters are sweet and brother gifts. A day when things are just upside down. A day when your brother assures you that he will always be by your side no matter what, will scold you but will never let you face problems alone. Yes, the day is Raksha Bandhan.
Raksha Bandhan is one of the most auspicious days in India. It is a day celebrated to symbolize the love between brothers and sisters. This year, Raksha Bandhan will be celebrated on 15th August 2019.
Splitting the word “Raksha Bandhan” into Raksha and Bandhan, where Raksha means ‘protection’ and Bandhan stands for ‘knot’. Combining these two, according to Sanskrit terminology, the festival signifies ‘a knot of protection’. It symbolizes the eternal bond between brothers and sisters. Since Raksha Bandhan is a tie of protection, therefore, it does not mean just the blood relationships only. In many parts of India, there are number of societies who work to provide an opportunity to girls who willingly want to tie or send rakhi’s to their army brothers. They are not siblings but the girls still want to tie rakhi’s because they feel love and protection that a brother promises.
An Insight of the festival
Sisters in Indian attire and brothers in kurta pyjama, the ritual starts with a prayer. Sisters prepare the Pooja thali with roli, chawal, rakhi, chocolates, sweets, and diya and brothers are prepared with gifts. She puts roli and chawal on forehead and ties rakhi on the wrist of their brothers chanting mantras for her brother’s well-being and happiness. Brothers, after teasing his sister which also has become a ritual, gifts her as an acknowledgment of sisters prayer and with a promise to always protect her and never let her face problems alone.
