Raksha Bandhan 2022: A brother and sister have a special bond that is indescribably strong and difficult to put into words. The bond between siblings is exceptional and valued everywhere in the world. However, since there is a celebration called “Raksha Bandhan” dedicated to sibling love in India, the relationship becomes much more significant.
This unique Hindu festival is observed in India and other nations, such as Nepal, to represent the love between a brother and a sister. The Hindu luni-solar holiday of Raksha Bandhan is observed on the day of the full moon in the month of Shravana, which corresponds to the Gregorian calendar month of August.
As most Hindu rituals, Raksha Bandhan is rooted in history and mythology. During the events of the Mahabharat, legend dictates that when Lord Krishna accidentally nicked his finger on his ‘sudarshan chakra’, Princess Draupadi tore a piece of her saree and tied it to his finger to stop the bleeding. Lord Krishna was so touched by this gesture that he vowed to always protect and cherish her.
