RAKSHABANDHAN- A BROTHER-SISTER FESTIVAL

Also called Rakhi, Raksha Bandhan is one of the two Hindu festivals that celebrates the brother-sister ties. The tie of sibling love is recapitulated with the tying of Rakhi, a string that can be very elaborate and decorative or it can even be a very plain and simple thread. Rakhi falls on the full moon day of the holy month of shravan, the month of monsoons.
