What Is Raksha Bandhan?
Rakhi or Raksha Bandhan is a Hindu festival defining love and close-knit sibling bonds. To celebrate the bond of love and affection, a sister ties a thread known as Rakhi on her brother’s wrist, and he gives her gifts and promises to support her to protect her dignity and self-respect.
