Raksha Bandhan or Rakhee is one of the most popular festivals in India. It is celebrated by the Hindus, though it is also observed among Sikhs and Jains. Raksha bandhan means
“bond of protection”.
Sisters tie a thread around the right wrist of their brothers, praying for their long life while brothers take a vow to protect their sisters. The festival celebrates the love and duty
between brothers and sisters.
