Raksha Bandhan or Rakhi is an extremely auspicious festival in India.
It celebrates the promise of protection, usually between brothers and sisters but isn’t confined to just them. It could also be tied by a wife to her husband, or by a disciple to the Guru. This bond does not have to be between blood relatives. This ritual not only strengthens the bond of love, but also transcends the boundaries of the family.
Raksha Bandhan is an ancient festival and has many myths and historic legends linked to it.The popular practice of Raksha Bandhan has its historical associations also. The Rajput queens practiced the custom of sending Rakhi threads to neighbouring rulers as token of brotherhood.
