Why is Raksha Bandhan Celebrated?

The hindi word “Raksha” literally means protection and the word “Bandhan” means bonding or to tie. Raksha Bandhan is to celebrate the bonding between a sister and a brother, to create a bond and to strengthen the bond of a brother and sister. When a sister (or a female) ties the rakhi on the wrist of her brother (or a boy) is believed that the brother protects the sister at any situation at any cost. This Hindu tradition is followed for years and has different reasons and incidents as milestones to be noted. /here are few lines on Raksha Bandhan and the legends of the Raksha Bandhan.

The festival is believed to have originated from the events of Mahabarat when Lord Krishna got a cut in his finger from his chakra, Draupati couldn’t see Lord Krishna bleeding, so she tore a piece from her saree and tied it in the cut to stop the bleeding. Lord Krishna was touched by this gesture of Draupati and promised her that he will protect Draupati from all evils which he did when he protected Draupati from Kauravas.

Another popular and one of the greatest reasons for the celebration of Raksha Bandhan is the story of Rani Karnavati and the Mughal Emperor, Humayun. Rani Karnavati, the widowed queen of Chittor of Mewar Kingdom sent a Rakhi to the Mughal Emperor Humayun asking for help from him to protect her Kingdom from the invasion of Bahadur Shah of Gujarat. And Humayun accepted Karnavati’s Rakhi and sent gifts back to Karnavati assuring to protect her and her Kingdom. The Rakhi made the Mughal Emperor Humayun the Dharamabhai (brother) of Rani Karnavati.

Raksha Bandhan Celebration

On Raksha Bandhan, wherever the sister is, the brother reaches the sister and the sister ties “Rakhi” the bonding thread on the wrist of the brother and feeds sweets to the brother. In return the brother will give gifts to the sister. Be it a small gift or a big gift, the sister will accept it with a lot of love. The Army people will be sent a lot of Rakhis on Raksha Bandhan as they don’t get to see their sisters. The local girls from the place the army people stay will tie Rakhi on the wrists of the soldiers as they are the real brothers protecting our country.
