The Raksha Bandhan story…
How exactly it all started is lost in the shrouds of time. However, Raksha Bandhan or Rakhi as it more colloquially called is a festival that celebrates the precious bond between brothers and sisters. A bond that is enshrined within the epics (Krishna and Draupadi, Sachi and King Bali, Yama and Yamuna), as well as in the history of our country.
Queen Karnavati of Chittor is said to have sent the Mughal emperor Humayun a rakhi, requesting his protection when marauder Bahadur Shah attacked her kingdom. Humayun, then in the middle of a military campaign, chose to abandon it, and turned instead towards Chittor, in recognition of this sacred bond. While he could not reach in time to save the queen’s life, he restored the kingdom to her son, Vikramjit.
How do you plan to celebrate Rakhi?
Sweets, specially prepared treats, and an aarti thaali (tilak), are what most sisters greet their brothers with before they tie the rakhi on their brother’s wrist. The brother, in turn, vow to be there for their sisters in all times, good or bad, and often give them a gift on the occasion.
