Raksha Bandhan

24th August a special day for every brother and sister. Yes exactly this is Raksha Bandhan formally known as the day of Brother and sister. Every year this day is celebrated on Full moon day of Shraavana. This is the day which makes the relationship of Brother and sister stronger.

Sister tie up the Rakhi that is a holly thread on her brother‘s wrist and wish for his long life. Brothers in return offer gifts to her sister and promise her always to be there to help her. 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. In return Humayon helped his sister by sending his military to be part of Rani Defender.

In other parts of India different state celebrate this day as per there Tradition. Every Festival is special which give us the time to share and spend some time with our family and relatives this makes our relationship stronger.

It’s a national festival of India which memorized us our responsibility and sincerity towards India. Our freedom fighters have struggled so much to get us free from British rule. People enjoy this day by flying kites in sky which means we are free as the kites are free to fly in sky. Today I can see everybody is enjoying this day with their friends, neighbors, and relatives who increase our strength and shows that though India is divided in different states and every state has different language, culture, tradition but still we are one India one Nation.
