They enjoy sweets as well. Behind every Indian festival there is a historical story. In the Same way there is a story behind celebration of Raksha Bandhan.
Around 15th Century there was a Queen called Rani Karnavti the widow of Chittor’s King. That time there were many wars between Different Emperors. When Queen Rani Karnavati felt that she would be not able to defend her kingdom from Sultan of Gujarat, Bahadur Shah, then she sent a rakhi to Emperor Humayon.
