The festival of Raksha Bandhan is very special for a sister and a brother. They wait for the whole year to enjoy together. The bond is so sweet as a sister with full faith ties a rakhi, protection no d on her brother’s wrist, and prayers for his welfare. In return, the brother assures her protection under any situation. This falls on the Shravan Pournami Day. The brother visits his sister if they are in the same city. The sister applies a tikka on his forehead and ties the band of relationship on his wrist. Offers him sweets and he gives him some gifts.
Those who are staying far away, send the Rakhi by post. Nowadays online delivery also is prevalent. Many women visit the Border and tie the Rakhis on their wrists of the soldier brothers who are the real brothers who bravely guard their sisters.
Even two sisters tie the relationship thread when they do not have a brother and promise to be there for each other. This is an emotional festival.
