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.
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.
