Raksha Bandhan has been celebrated in India since times immemorial. We hear about the tying of Rakhi, and the power of the love between brothers and sister, in a number of mythological and historical stories. Many believe that this beautiful festival started when Lord Indra's wife tied a sacred thread around his wrist to protect him in the war against demons.
Draupadi tying a cloth around Lord Krishna's bleeding hand in the battlefield is also a famous incident. Similar historical incident involving Rani Karnavati and Mughal Emperor Humayun underlines the strength of bond a rakhi can create. Today, Raksha Bandhan is celebrated all over India and Nepal on the full moon day of Shraavana (fifth month of Hindu calendar).
'Rakhi' tied around the right wrist of the brothers, is the central symbol of love and protection. It is the external manifestation of the sister's love and affection towards her brother. On the day of Raksha Bandhan, the everyone get up early in the morning, takes a bath, wears beautiful clothes, and visits the temple.
The sister ties the rakhi on her brother's right hand, and the brother gives her money or gifts and promises to protect her. Rakhi is a unique Indian festival that celebrates the sacred bond of love between sisters and brothers; there is no other festival in the world that equals to Rakhi.
Just a few decades ago, most people used colourful cotton or silk threads in place of rakhi. While a number of artistic rakhis were available even at that time, only the rich could afford metal and Zardosi rakhis. But today people can choose between hundreds of varieties of rakhees. Rakhi with dry fruits, pearl rakhi, diamond rakhi, rakhi with chocolates, rakhi with sweets, kid's rakhi hampers, bracelet rakhi, Lumba rakhi, Mauli rakhi, Zardosi rakhi and a number of decorative rakhi sets are available in the market at affordable rates.
