Happy Raksha Bandhan 2017

The festival ritually celebrates the love and duty between brothers and their sisters. As per traditions, on this day sisters tie a Rakhi (sacred thread of love) on their brothers’ wrist as a mark of affection, sisterly love and sublime sentiments, and pray for their well being. The brothers in return accept the love with a promise to protect their sisters and offer them gifts. The brothers wear the Rakhi which pulsates with sisterly love and sublime sentiments for the entire day. It not only strengthens the bond of love between brothers and sisters, but also transcends the confines of the family.

It is also popularly used to celebrate any brother-sister type of relationship between men and women who may or may not be biologically related. It gives a woman an opportunity to send a Rakhi to a man as a way of saying, ‘let us just be friends,’ without hurting his soft feelings for her.

In Nepal, the festival is called Janai Purnima or Rishitarpani, involving a sacred thread ceremony, one observed by Hindus and Newar Buddhist communities.
