The central ceremony involves the tying of a Rakhi (sacred thread) made of interwoven colourful threads by a sister on her brother’s wrist. This symbolizes the sister’s love and prayers for her brother’s well-being, and the brother’s lifelong vow to protect her.
Raksha Bandhan also has a social significance because it underlines the notion that everybody should live in harmonious coexistence with each other. Here’s wishing all of you a Happy Raksha Bandhan!
