All relationships are the centre of any festivity and that holds true for any Indian festival. Any occasion that brings the family together and calls for a merrymaking is often something we Indians look forward to and one such Indian festival is Raksha Bandhan.
Raksha Bandhan, popularly known as Rakhi, is a festival that celebrates the bond of unconditional love between brothers and sisters and is now celebrated across the world with utmost zeal and excitement. It is easily one of India’s most joyous and cheerful occasions celebrated and is also considered to be a secular festival.
On this day the sisters tie rakhis to their brothers, symbolizing thier love and prayers for the brothers’ wellbeing and the brothers’ lifelong vow to protect their sisters. In the end, the rakhi represents the love and close bond that brothers and sisters share.
While some girls prefer buying fancy rakhis, some like to tie simple traditional red & yellow threads while others even enjoy making rakhis at home.
The brothers then gratify their sisters with rakhi return gifts. While a lot of times the gift comes in the form of cash in a small envelope the trend is now changing and a lot of thought and love is put into the gifts that are exchanged on this special day.
Here are some of the hampers we have made for Raksha Bandhan.
