During Raksha Bandhan, sisters tie a sacred thread known as a “rakhi” around their brothers’ wrists as a symbol of protection, love, and goodwill. In return, brothers offer gifts and often make a promise to protect and support their sisters throughout their lives. The festival not only celebrates the sibling relationship but also emphasises the values of family, unity, and mutual respect. It is a day of joyous gatherings, heartfelt exchanges, and the strengthening of familial ties. Raksha Bandhan is observed on the full moon day of the Hindu lunar month of Shravana, typically falling in August.
