Rakshabandhan, also known as Rakhi, is a festival celebrated in India among all brothers and sisters, knitting the family together. Rakshabandhan, as the name suggests, is a bond of protection and love which is offered by a brother to his sister as she ties a Rakhi (thread like structure with décor). It is an ancient Hindu festival that is used to celebrate the relation between brother and sister, this affirms the family bond.
In particular, the sister performs the Rakhi ceremony. Women or girls shop for Rakhis (ceremonial threads) weeks before the festival day. On the morning of Rakshabandhan, brothers and sisters get ready, sit together often in pleasant clothes in front of elderly people of the house. With a lighted lamp(diya), the sister performs the ritual and ties the fancy rakhi onto the wrist of her brother, praying for his long life, prosperity and happiness, and expecting a promise of protection from his side. As a token of love, brothers usually offer gifts such as purse, handbag, wrist watch or even chocolates with a small monetary amount.
