Raksha Bandhan, also known as Rakshabandhan or simply Rakhi is an Indian and Nepalese festival centered around the tying of a thread, bracelet or talisman on the wrist as a form of bond and ritual protection.

The festive Hindu and Jain ritual are one principally between brothers and sisters, observed both before and after she gets married thereby marking her continued relationship with her natal home and brothers.

Raksha Bandhan is observed on the last day of the Hindu lunar calendar month of Shraavana, which typically falls in August. On this day, sisters of all ages tie a cotton bracelet or amulet, called the rakhi around the wrists of their brothers. 

Which affirming the bond and support of her brothers, receiving a gift from them in return, and traditionally investing the brothers with a share of the responsibility of their potential care.


A day to celebrate the sacred relation of a brother and sister, Raksha Bandhan holds immense importance in Hinduism and has been in practice for centuries.

Dating back to the ancient times, where the rishis (saints) tied rakhis to the people who came to seek their blessings. The sages too tied the sacred thread to safeguard themselves from evil.

Historically, the queen of Chittor, Rani Karnavati is believed to have sent a rakhi to Mughal emperor Humayun requesting him to come to her kingdom’s aid when Bahadur Shah of Gujarat invaded her kingdom.

The tying of Rakhi is also done by members of various communities in order to maintain a peaceful harmony in society. Even Rabindranath Tagore promoted the festival as a way to protect society and all the people.

He introduced Rakhi Utsav through which he brought Hindus and Muslims together in protest of the British government’s decision to partition Bengal in 1905.
In popular culture, the ritual of tying the rakhi often brings the family together.
