IMPORTANCE OF RAKHI

Rakshabandhan usually falls on the full moon day or Purnima of the Shravan month as per the hindu calender .If we break the word Rakshabandhan we get the two words like Raksha and Bandhan,which mean protection and tying the thread of love. This festival is well known for manifesting a strong bond between brothers and sisters.
Rakshabandhan is an ancient concept where queens used to send rakhis to their neighbourhood brothers as a sign of love and token of brotherhood. But now the concept has totally changed in itself. Today what is observed mostly is sisters tie rakhi on their brother/s wrist and pray for their well-being. The brothers promise to take care by saving her from ups and downs in her life.
Then the ritual starts by lighting a diya which symbolises the fire deity. Then the ritual is carried on with prayers, aarti of the brother, and then gifts, hugs, promises, and tempting sweets. This festival nothing but promotes and strengthens the bond between bhaiya and behena. Celebrate this beautiful bond of brother and sister with online cake delivery in gurgaon.
