Celebrate Sibling Love this Raksha bandhan
The Beginning of the Tradition
The Beginning of the Tradition
There is no love like sibling love. No matter how much you fight with each other, the bond between a brother and a sister is not only precious but also very pure. Amidst all the leg-pulling and fighting, love is what is hidden behind all the pranks. Raksha bandhan is one such festival which celebrates this purest form of love in the best way. The sister ties a rakhi on her brother’s wrist while the brother pampers his beloved sister and blesses her. Gifts are also exchanged between the siblings. Modern day rakhi celebration is very different from what it was when it originated. The origin of raksha bandhan is still unknown to many people. Raksha bandhan was known to have started 6000 years ago. It was started by the Aryans when they started the first ever civilisation – Indus Valley Civilisation. However, there are many other historical and famous incidents linked with the auspicious tradition of the raksha bandhan. The episode between Emperor Humayun and Rani Karnavati is one of the most important in history of the tradition. When the Rajputs were fighting with the Mughal invaders, Rani Karnavati, the queen of Chittor, knew that she would not be able to defend the kingdom against Sultan of Gujarat all by herself. She then sent rakhi to king Humayun, asking for his assistance. The Emperor was touched by this gesture and immediately headed towards Chittor to block the invasion. Hindu mythology also has a very significant episode of brother sister love. In the mythological epic of Mahabharata, Lord Krishna killed the wicked King Shishupal. Lord Krishna was injured during the fight. Draupadi, to stop the bleeding, tore a part of her saree and tied it around Lord Krishna’s wrist. Realising Draupadi’s concern for him, Krishna vowed to protect her for the rest of his life. This is what raksha bandhan means – a sister’s undying love and care for her brother and a brother’s life-long vow to protect her against all evil. To celebrate this wonderful occasion, Mirraw.com brings to you an array of meaningful gifts that will bring a wide smile on your brother’s faces. You can now choose the perfect gift from our exclusive gift collection for raksha bandhan.

According to the English calendar, this day falls in August. This year, the date of rakhi is 18th August, 2017. Since it is a auspicious occasion, the people in India do an “aarti” during the occasion. For this reason, particular timings have to be maintained. According to the position of the moon, timings or muhurats are fixed. The best muhurat to tie rakhi on 18th August, 2017 is in the afternoon. The muhurat will start at 05:55 and continue till 14:56. But the most auspicious timing is from 13:42 to 14:56. The preparations for rakhi start weeks before the main occasion. Sisters are out shopping for rakhi. Every year people who make rakhi design many beautiful rakhis for your brother. Rakhis are usually a few colourful threads woven together. To make it more ornate, the makers use colourful stones, sparkles and even sometimes peacock feathers. The sisters look for the best rakhi for their brothers, something unique and better than last year. Rakhis are also made with original flowers which look equally pretty and even more beautiful. Many people make their own rakhi. An aarti thali is prepared with a lighted diya or clay candle which marks the beginning of the celebration. The sisters apply teeka or a sindoor print on the brother’s forehead. Then she ties the rakhi and feeds him a sweet. The brother blesses her and feeds sweet to her too and also gives her a gift.
