Raksha Bandhan is an Indian festival that celebrates the love between brothers and sisters.The festival’s name is made up of two words: Raksha meaning protection and Bandhan meaning to tie or bond.
The brother in return offers gifts to his sister and promises to protect her from any harm.
The significance of the festival lies in its expression of love. As the years have passed by, the festival has evolved in its sense and expression. From tribals and environmental groups tying rakhis around trees to protect them, to people tying it on their pets, and people of different faiths tying it on each other to send out a message of tolerance to the community, the festival of Raksha Bandhan has progressed into a celebration of togetherness and companionship.
