Send Rakhi to Chandigarh!
The sister- brother bond is one of the most pious and innocent human bonds possible. The fights, the arguments, the friendship, the love, the constant lookout for each other, such factors make this relationship one of the most cherished bonds. A child might not be as close to his parents or elders, but he will surely be close to his siblings. They not only unconditionally love us, but they understand us as well. Especially the bond between a brother and a sister, it is one of the most sacred and innocent bond between a man and a woman.
This bond is celebrated in India with great pomp and show every year on full moon day in the Shravan month of the Hindu calendar. This festival is an ancient Hindu festival whose origin and mention can be found in numerous Hindu mythology stories and similarly in Indian history. There are many different stories who different people believe to be the origin for this festival. One such very famous story revolves around Goddess Laxmi and King Bali. Lord Vishnu was urged by Bali to live in his palace as a blessing after he was defeated by Lord Vishnu. But goddess Laxmi didn’t like Vishnu to be friends with Bali or live in his palace. Therefore she tied a holy thread or Rakhi to Bali who asked her to ask a gift in return. She asked him to let go of his wish and let Vishnu and Laxmi return to their place. He agreed to this and thus Raksha Bandhan and the concept of gifts and presents from brother to his sister originated. The festivities begin days before the actual festival of Raksha Bandhan. Rakhis in various colours and designs can be found in the market. Sweets and gifts are also present in the market especially prepared for this occasion. On the day of Raksha Bandhan, sisters tie a sacred thread or ‘Rakhi’ to their brothers as a mark of love and pray for their well being. They put a ‘Tilak’ on the forehead and feed him sweets or ‘Mithai’. The brother in turn vows to protect his sister for life and please her with a gift. This tradition and festival is observed by Hindus, Jains and Sikhs in India and abroad. Also it is celebrated with equal excitement in parts of Bangladesh, parts of Pakistan and Mauritius.
