Rakhsha bandhan this year, 2016, will be observed on August 18th, Thursday. According to the Hindu calendar the festival that celebrates love between a brother and sister, will fall on full moon day (Purnima) of the Shravan month. Celebrated across the length and breadth of the country, the festival brings great joy and happiness to everyone in the family, especially the children who get to gorge on delicious home-made delicacies, wear new clothes and make merry.
Now India being blessed with a rich heritage is known worldwide as a land of diverse cultures that encourages people to celebrate all festivals with full zest and zeal. One of the many joyous festivals observed and celebrated with great enthusiasm is Rakshabandhan – celebrating the bond between brother-sister. On Rakshabandhan sisters tie rakhi on their brothers’ wrists and brothers pledge to take care and protect them.
So while sisters tie the holy thread, they also pray for their brothers’ well-being and good health. And further as a token of love, brothers give their sisters gifts with an assurance that they will always be around for them in times of difficulties.
The festival is a fun-filled affair for everyone in the family, most importantly for the siblings.
So celebrate the auspicious festival of Rakshabandhan with joy and vigour!
And don’t worry if your brother is not around for the festival or stays in some other city or some other part of the world. You can easily send him a beautiful rakhi via Bablarakhi.com and make him feel special and happy.
