NEW DELHI: Raksha Bandhan, meaning "bond of protection", is celebrated as a festival that strengthens the bond between brothers and sisters. As a token of respect, sisters tie 'rakhi' (sacred thread) on hands of their brothers which symbolizes their love.
Brother, in return, gives her a token gift and a promise to protect her.
It is observed on the full moon day of the Hindu calendar month of Shravana, which typically falls in the month of August. This year it's falling on August 7
Raksha Bandhan a festival of love, care and friendship between brothers and sisters is just around the corner, and Indian markets are full of colourful Rakhies and presents. Where sisters are looking at every corner of beautiful shops to get the best Rakhi for their brothers, Brothers on the other side are struggling to find the best gift for their sisters
