Rakhi Special

When is Rakhi

Rakhi is an unspoken pledge exchanged between a brother and sister cementing their fraternal relationship. It also reinforces their protective bond against all ills and odds. On Rakhi day sister decorate rakhi thali with sweets, rakhis and tie a delicate, sometimes decorated, thread on the wrist of their brothers as a symbol of love and affection. Through the passage of time, festivals are undergoing many changes. Today's rakhi is also known as RakshaBandhan meaning the bond of protection. Rakhi is the most sacred festival for sisters and brothers. On this day sisters tie rakhi thread on the wrist of the brothers. In bygone days priests used to tie a sacred thread on the wrist of people of his congregation.

During the middle ages, if a woman tied a rakhi thread on the wrist of any man, then it became essential for him, as his religious duty to honor and protect that woman at all times.

Raksha Bandhan (Rakhi) is celebrated on the day of Shravan Poornima that falls in the month of August every year. This year Rakhi or Raksha Bandhan is on 10th August 2014.
