Rakhi is a traditional Indian festival celebrated to strengthen the bond of love and affection between brothers and sisters. It is also known as Raksha Bandhan, which means “the bond of protection.” The primary ritual of Rakhi involves a sister tying a sacred thread (known as a “rakhi”) around her brother’s wrist, and the brother, in return, promises to protect and take care of his sister. While the festival has cultural and religious significance, it also holds several social and emotional benefits:

  • Strengthening Sibling Bonds
  • Promoting Family Unity
  • Acknowledging and Respecting Women
  • Exchange of Gifts
  • Reflecting Cultural Values
  • Fostering Love and Affection
  • Celebrating Different Types of Relationships
  • Encouraging Generosity
  • Spreading Happiness
