Happy Raksha Bandhan 2023:
Celebrating Eternal Bonds
- A Thread of Love and Protection

Raksha Bandhan is one of the purest and ancient Hindu festivals celebrated every year to honour the inseparable bond of a brother and sister. It symbolises the relationship of love, care, and protection that siblings share for a lifetime. 

In Indian culture sibling relationships hold significant importance and are deeply rooted in the country’s traditions, values and societal norms. Rakasha Bandhan, often simply referred to as “Rakhi”, Rakhi is a sacred thread believed to have relevance in strengthening the emotional bond between siblings. The word “Raksha” means protection, and “Bandhan” means bond. 

Rakhi serves as a physical representation of the promise of protection. When a sister ties the Rakhi around her brother’s wrist, it’s a symbolic act of seeking his support and safeguarding. Beyond its protective connotation, the Rakhi is a profound expression of love.

The act of tying the Rakhi is a way for the sister to convey her affection and care for her brother. It’s a gesture that exceeds the words and signifies the deep emotional connection they share.

However, it’s also significant to understand that the festival of Raksha Bandhan is not just restricted to their own sisters and brothers; it’s for everyone. 

As we reflect on these heartwarming gestures and traditions that epitomise  the spirit of Raksha Bandhan, we naturally come to the beautiful tradition of gifting during this cherished festival.
