Raksha Bandhan is a Hindu festival celebrated mainly in the North of India. Rakshan Bandan falls on the full moon day of the Hindu month – Shravan. According to the English calendar it falls in the month of August. Raksha Bandan means “tie or knot of protection” in Sanskrit. It is a symbolic renewal of the relationship between a brother and a sister. The sister tries a rakhi on her brother’s wrist to show her love for him, after which she prays for his well being and prosperity. In return the brother takes a wow to protect her throughout her life. The brother gifts her sister in return for the Rakhi which is a designer thread. According to Mahabharata, Draupadi the Pandava queen had tied a Rakhi to Lord Krishna. So Krishna considered Draupadi as her own sister. Raksha Bandhan signifies the virtues of love, affection and protection.
