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.
