Raksha Bandhan

Raksha Bandhan

Today is Raksha Bandhan, A Hindu festival that celeberates Brother – Sister relationship. I am wearing two Rakhis that were sent to me by my two sisters, One in India & another in London.

Rakhi or Raksha is a sacred thread embellished with sister’s love and affection for her brother. On the day of Raksha Bandhan sisters tie Rakhi on their brother’s wrist and express their love for him. By accepting a Rakhi from a sister a brother gladly takes on the responsibility of protecting her sister. In Indian tradition the frail thread of Rakhi is considered stronger than iron chains as it binds brothers and sisters in an inseparable bond of love and trust.
