Rakhsha Bandhan

Raksha Bandhan is one of the major festival in India. It stands for the most sacred and unconditional relationship of humanity.

The festival of rakhi is celebrated in various ways in different areas of India. While observed in a similar manner across most of North India, other regions of India celebrate this festival in their own unique ways. In Maharashtra and its capital city Mumbai, Raksha Bandhan Day is celebrated as Narial Purnima or Coconut Full Moon day. Coconuts are offered to the Varuna the Sea God, as a form of worship.
