Rakhi is a wonderful Indian festival. It symbolizes the love of brother and sister. Girls tie the thread knots on their brother's wrist and pass their eternal love. In return, brothers promise to take care of their sisters and give them gifts. It is often known as 'RakshaBandhan'. It is believed that the tied thread will save the brother from every trouble in life.


Origin of rakhi is rooted in the Hindu mythology. There is no confirm date or time is available. But their are many stories related to the festival. Even Mughals are also supposed to celebrate this festival.

Changes with time

With the passing time, festival has modified its form. But the thing that can never change is the true affection between a brother and a sister. when the siblings are apart, e-cards play an important role. Gifts are sent through couriers and online. But they are always filled of a lot of love, care and concern.


Brother, Festival, Sisters
