Rakhi is just not a sacred thread that is tied on the wrist of a brother by his sister, but it is an emotion that is shared between a brother and a sister. The festival of Rakhsha Bandhan, which is also known as Rakhi Purnima in India, involves the tying of a rakhi (sacred thread) by a sister on the wrist of her brother. This whole ritual of typing this sacred thread symbolizes the sister's love and prayers for her brother's well-being, and the brother's lifelong vow to protect her. Moreover by tying this sacred thread which is laced with love and affection, on the brother’s wrist, the sister pledges to strengthen their eternal love to a greater extent. Thus take a tour through this Rakhsha Bandhan section and find out more about this festival of love which celebrated by every Indian brother and sister. Also know about the origin of this festival and what are customs that are solely associated with this festival.
Raksha Bandhan will be celebrated on Wednesday, August 30 in 2023.
In bonds of love, a thread is tied,
A sacred promise, side by side,
Rakhi's embrace, a cherished art,
Binding souls and warming hearts.
A silken thread, a vibrant hue,
Symbolizing love that's pure and true,
Sister's hand, brother's wrist,
A bond that time will never resist.
Through laughter's joy and tears we weep,
Rakhi's thread our secrets keep,
In moments of need, a silent call,
A bond that stands strong, never to fall.
A promise made on this special day,
To cherish, protect, come what may,
Sister's prayer, brother's vow,
In the tapestry of love, it's woven now.
In every knot, a tale is spun,
Of siblings' bond, second to none,
Rakhi's bond, forever shall remain,
A radiant light through joy and pain.
Oh, Rakhi's thread, so simple yet grand,
A connection that time cannot withstand,
In the book of memories, a chapter to find,
The bond of siblings, heart and mind.
So let us celebrate, this bond so sweet,
Where love and care in each knot meet,
Rakhi's essence, forever will stay,
A treasured connection, come what may.
