Rakshabhandhan festival is celebrated all over India and among Indians spread in all corners of the World.
You can buy these beautiful Rakhis on Amazon.
Traditionally, it started with a sister asking for help and though there was no relation between both, the person promptly helped. The sister had sent a thread to the person, as to be tied to the wrist of the recipient, to ask for security.
Over the years, this very emotional and affectionate festival is widely celebrated with a lot of zeal.
Rules of engagement;
● Sisters tie Rakhi( thread) on the wrist of the Brothers.
● Sisters tie Rakhi to Sisters.
● In some communities family members tie Rakhis to each other.
● It is not only for relatives.
● You can see people typing Rakhis to Prominent people, beauracrats, Police Personnel, Defence Personal, for their support.
● People also tie Rakhis to Trees.
Basic gist is a bond of safety, assurance and affection.
Among Sisters and Brothers, when a Rikhi is tied, the Brothers give a gift.
Now, gifts can be a sum of money, or a product that will be used by the sister.
Every Brother gives gifts according to his affordability. Sisters arrange for a meal and nowadays give return gifts. This deepens the bond between the siblings.
The markets are flooded with products and it becomes very confusing to pick up the right gift.
Here is my list of gifts to make your task easy:
