Prime Minister Narendra Modi prolonged heat greetings and good needs to the countrymen on the event of Raksha Bandhan. The pageant that honours the deep bond of affection between siblings, is being celebrated everywhere in the nation right this moment, August 22.

Ahead of the Raksha Bandhan, Modi’s Pakistani sister Qamar Mohsin Sheikh had despatched a rakhi and a Raksha Bandhan card to him. Speaking to ANI, she had mentioned, “I want him a cheerful Raksha Bandhan. I pray for him day by day for his good well being and lengthy life. I noticed on tv the best way he met sports activities personalities just lately. Being the mom of a sportsperson, I consider he’ll name me and my household to Delhi for tying a rakhi. My son Sufain Shaikh is among the world’s youngest swimmers who has gained many awards.”

The word Raksha Bandhan roughly gets translated to ‘protection’ and ‘bond’. ‘Rakhi’ symbolises the sacred thread of protection tied on the right wrists of brothers by sisters, traditionally. Dedicated to the wonderful relationship between all brothers and sisters, Raksha Bandhan is an auspicious festival that occurs on a full moon day (Purnima) during the Shravan month, according to Hindu Panchang.

As the day is dedicated to siblings, women tie an amulet, called the Rakhi, around the wrists of their brothers and seek protection in return. With the passage of time, the festival and the idea behind it has also evolved and now, it has not only been limited to brothers and sisters. Now, sisters tie Rakhi around the wrists of each other.
