Raksha Bandhan or Rakhi is an Indian Festival

It symbolizes the brother-sister relationship of goodwill

It falls in the month of Shravana in the Hindu calendar

Or in August according to the Gregorian calendar

 The sister performs aarti(ritual of worship)after which she ties a Rakhi (sacred thread) on the wrist of her brother

The brother promises to protect his sister and gives her a gift which she will cherish forever

The sister feeds her brother sweets and prays for his prosperity and happiness

This festival symbolizes the love and duty between brother and sister that is what it is!

Editor’s note: Everyone should treasure their siblings, irrespective of whether it’s a brother or a sister.In my opinion, it’s a relationship that will last forever.Even after your parents die you will still have each other. Also growing up, it was mostly me protecting my brother but that was a role I was only too happy to carry out.Cherish the moments you spend together.
