Raksha Bandhan stands for the celebration of siblinghood and is also known as Rakhi “the knot of commitment”. Raksha means protection, and in some places in medieval India, where women felt unsafe, they tie Rakhi on the wrist of men, regarding them as brothers. In this way, Rakhi strengthens the bond of love between brothers and sisters, and revives the emotional bonding.
This year celebrate the special bond by making your own Rakhi at home!
