The bond between siblings is celebrated every year with much gusto on the occasion of Raksha Bandhan. Raksha Bandhan is one of the most important festivals celebrated in India. Popularly known as Rakhi, this ritual refers to a sister tying a sacred thread on the wrist of her brother.
Raksha Bandhan is celebrated each year on the full moon in the Hindu month of Shravan which for the year 2022 falls on August 11.
Observed by siblings, this auspicious festival is dedicated to the pious bond between a brother and a sister.
'Raksha' means security and 'bandhan' means bond, which clearly signifies the meaning behind the Hindu festival. Besides all the mythical and historical importance, the true significance of the occasion lies in the true bond between a brother and a sister. It is the pure symbol of love, where the siblings promise to always be there for each other and make sure to safeguard the honour and glory of one another.
