 The festival season is kick starting again for year 2022. The first festival of the season is RAKSHA BANDHAN. Also Known as Rakhi. It is celebrated all over India and is a very popular festival in India.

Why is Raksha Bandhan Celebrated?

Raksha Bandhan also known as Rakhi is a festival of brother-sister relationship. It celebrates the bond between the brother and sister. On this day the sister ties a thread on the wrist of her brother. In return he promises to keep her protected, be with her always and keep her happy. After the tying of rakhi, pooja is done and gifts are exchanged.

When is Raksha Bandhan celebrated?

Raksha Bandhan is observed on the full moon day or Purnima in Hindu calendar month of Shravan. While it can be celebrated all day long. But some people like to follow a particular timing which is auspicious for the day to tie the rakhi. Every year, the dates and time is changed.

Breaking stereotypes?

Over the years, raksha Bandhan was always about the sisters tying rakhi to their brothers but now things are changing. The very fact that Raksha Bandhan means is to protect each other and celebrate the bond between two people does not only apply to the relationship of brother-sister. Now days, even the brothers are tying rakhi to their sisters, sisters are tying rakhi to each other and celebrating sisterhood. Even husband-wife are tying Rakhi’s to each other, children are tying rakhi to their parents. 

There is a shift in the thinking of people. In a world where we celebrate equality then why not apply it in this case too.

So it doesn’t matter if you have a brother or not, we must celebrate this bond with our loved ones because ultimately it is the festival of bond between 2 people.
