Rasksha Bandhan

Raksha Bandhan is a festival that symbolizes the sacred relation between Brother and Sister. It is celebrated on the Full Moon day of the Shravan (July-August) Month of Hindu Calendar. Also known as Rakhi, Raksha Bandhan is a special occasion that is celebrated by tying a holy thread of protection by a sister to her brother around the wrist. Among all the mythological legends related to Raksha Bandhan, most famous is the one related to Queen Draupadi and Lord Krishna. Once when Lord Krishna was hurt during a war and was left with a bleeding finger, Draupadi tied a cloth, torn from her sari, to his bleeding hand, and in return Krishna promised to repay her debt in future. Similarly, by extending their wrist for Holy Rakhi, brother promises to protect his sister throughout his life.
