Raksha Bandhan means “The Bond of Protection” is a Hindu festival celebrated by Indians all over the world. On this day, sisters tie a silk thread called “Rakhi” on their brother’s wrist and pray to god for the well-being of their brothers and brothers make a promise to their sisters to protect them from all possible harms and troubles throughout their life.

This Rakhi has a historical importance. The Rajput queens (Rajput’s ruled India in 12th century) practiced this custom of sending Rakhi’s to the neighboring rulers as a token of brotherhood. This shows sister’s love & prayers for brother’s well-being, and brother’s taking lifelong vow to protect her. According to Hindu lunisolar calendar, this festival is celebrated on the full moon day (Shravan Poornima) of Shravan month. However, there is another belief said by one Islamic scholar who believes this Raksha Bandhan grew in popularity after Rani Karnavati, the widowed queen of chittor, sent a rakhi to the mughal emperor Humayan (in 15th Century) when she required his help.

Raksha-bandhan-greetings

In present scenario, this festival has a different perspective. The festival of Raksha Bandhan occupies all forms of Raksha or protection, and destroying all sins. This religious rite of tying Rakhi has become so important that brothers and sisters visit each others places bringing unity among the family, binding the family all together in emotional bond of love.

Send video greetings to your sisters with your blessings and personalized video messages saying how much she means to you in this whole wide world and the oath you took on this occasion to protect her throughout her entire life.

After many lives lost, on August 15th, the British left India. Since then August 15th is celebrated as Independence Day. This led to the partition of India and Pakistan.

Since the partition, India saw tremendous growth in the economy, media, telecom, space technology, atomic energy, and software. Apart from these, India is now world’s 5th powerful country with world’s 3rd largest military power. The national flag of India occupies a prominent place in Indian homes.

In the month of Ramadan, practicing Muslims were instructed to pray 5 times a day and from dawn to dusk they should not eat or drink or smoke or have sexual activities. As the sun goes down, people will start eating again (breaking the fast). This meal is known as “Iftar”. In countries like Dubai, markets open after Iftar and stay open all the night. This usually continues for thirty days sometimes twenty nine days depending on the visual sightings of the crescent moon.

This annual observance is regarded as one of the Five Pillars of Islam. Fasting is meant to teach patience and allowing them to think about how the poor and homeless suffer without enough food. In Arabic countries, It’s been said that fasting, praying, reading Qur’an and giving charity strengthens their faith, teaches them discipline, gratitude, and humbleness, and in short, makes them a better Muslim. According to Islam, the thawab (rewards) of fasting are many, and during the month of Ramadan it is believed to be multiplied.

Below is an info graphic chart on Ramadan festival.
