Raksha Bandhan Festival and Gifts for Brother and Sister
Rakhi is the festival for Brothers and Sisters in India. It is also known as "Raksha Bandhan", which means "Bond of Protection". It is celebrated by Hindu, Jain and Sikh communities in Northern and Western parts of India.
In the southern part of India, the Rakhi is celebrated as Rakhi Purnima. Raksha Bandhan is celebrated on full moon day of Shravan Month (as per Hindu Lunar Calander). On this day, sisters tie Rakhi on their brothers wrist. Sisters prey long life for their brothers while brothers vow for protecting their sisters.
This is a great symbol of love and affection between brother and sister in Indian culture. This festival is generally observed between real siblings but in some communities cousin brothers and sisters also exchange Rakhi and gifts among themselves.
On several occasions, girls and boys, not having blood relationships, also exchange gifts and Rakhi and become brothers and sisters.
On the auspecious day of Rakhi, the sister prepares the Rakhi Pooja Thali and decorates it with diya, roli, tika, chawal, rakhi and sweets. After initial prayers, sisters perform aarti of their brothers, prey for their long lives and prosperity, put roli, tika and chawal on their forehead, tie Rakhi on their wrists and offer them sweets to eat.
Brothers take an oath to protect their sisters, offer them sweets to eat and a gift, which includes Sari, Salwar Suit, Gold or Diamond ornaments. In current era, due to fast life style, it is not possible for brothers and sisters to perform the ritual face to face; they send Rakhi and Gifts through courier and online Rakhi portals. The gifts symbolize the physical acceptance of love, affection and warmth of the relationship.
This auspicious day has become very critical to remind people of their love and duties for their siblings, no matter which part of the globe they are in.
On Rakhi, both brothers and sisters remember each other and try to meet or talk to each other. Hence, Rakhi has become an important day for reunion of the siblings.
