The bonding between a brother and a sister is simply unique and beyond description in words. The relationship between siblings is extraordinary and is given importance in every part of the world.
This relationship is signified by the festival of "Raksha Bandhan" dedicated for the sibling love and care of a sister and brother.
This is a special Hindu festival which is celebrated all over the world to symbolize the close bond between brothers and sisters. The occasion of Raksha Bandhan is celebrated on the full moon day of the Hindu lunar-solar calendar in the month of Shravana which typically falls in the month of August.
The festival is made up of two words, namely "Raksha" and "Bandhan." As per the Sanskrit terminology, the occasion means "the tie or knot of protection" where "Raksha" stands for the protection and "Bandhan" signifies the verb to tie.
