On the day of Rakhi, the tying of this sacred thread symbolises the immense love and prayers for the well being of her brother and in turn brother takes an oath to protect her throughout his lifetime. After this, the brother gives presents to his sister. Usually, the brother and sister feed one another with traditional sweets such as jalebi, kaju katli and burfi and also chocolates. Although it is a festival which celebrates the sacred relation between brothers and sisters, it has also been a symbol of protection in the past. The sacred thread could be tied by wife, daughter or mother. In fact, in old times even the sages tied this thread to people who came for their blessings and also tied it to themselves to protection themselves from all evil. Nowadays, this thread is also tied by some people to their neighbours and close friends, denoting a peaceful co-existence.
Rakhi, also known as Raksha Bandhan, is a well known festival celebrated in India. Like many other festivals, the festival of rakhi too stresses on the importance of relationships; it is relation between brothers and sisters that Rakhi glorifies, and rightly so. Celebrated in different parts of the country in different ways, the festival of Rakhi is also known by various names. It is known as 'Rakhi Purnima' in some places, particularly in Southern India, whereas Hindus and Jains, mostly in Northern India, call it 'Raksha Bandhan'. The word 'Raksha Bandhan' means the 'Bond of Protection'. The most important aspect of the festival is the tying of the sacred thread, which is also known as 'Rakhi', by a sister to the wrist of her brother. Rakhi threads are made available, in many designs and colours, in the markets a good month before the actual day of the festival.
