Raksha Bandhan Festival –2017.

Today is the festival of Raksha Bandhan. Warm Greetings and Good Wishes to all of you on the occasion of Raksha Bandhan / Rakhi Purnima. This festival is observed in the month of Sravan/Sravana masam on the Full Moon day/Purnima/Pournami. This photo blog post is to happily convey to you how we celebrated the festival today.
Raksha Bandhan in Sanskrit literally means "The tie or knot of protection".  The word Raksha means protection, while Bandhan is the verb to tie. It is an ancient Hindu festival that ritually celebrates the love and duty between brothers and their sisters. The sister performs a Rakhi ceremony, and then prays to express her love and her wish for the well being of her brother; in return, the brother ritually pledges to protect and take care of his sister under all circumstances. It is one of the several occasions in which family ties are affirmed not just among Hindu families but in countless other Indian families, like among Sikhs and Jains. Rakhi festival is not just among sisters and brothers it is an occasion to celebrate brother-sister like family ties between cousins and distant family members and friends.
