Sister's love knows no bounds!

Why Rakhi is Celebrated?

Raksha Bandhan, derived from the Sanskrit words "Raksha" (protection) and "Bandhan" (bond), is a joyous festival that commemorates the unconditional love between brothers and sisters.

On this auspicious day, sisters tie a sacred thread, rakhi, around their brother's wrists. It symbolises their love, care, and their lifelong commitment to protect each other. The rakhi serves as a tangible reminder of the unbreakable bond shared by siblings and the promise to stand by each other through thick and thin.

An ancient tale of love and protection!

History of Raksha Bandhan

To understand the history of Raksha Bandhan, we journey back in time to the realms of mythology. According to ancient Hindu scriptures, the festival has its roots in various legends and tales.

One such story recounts the bond between Lord Krishna and Draupadi, the wife of the Pandavas. When Draupadi tore a piece of her saree to stop Krishna's bleeding wrist during a battle, he promised to always protect her. This heartfelt gesture of loyalty and the sacred thread that bound them became symbolic of the Rakhi tradition.
