The song from the movie 'Resham Ki Dori' aptly describes the theme of the festival of Raksha Bandhan which goes as “Behana ne bhai ki kalai pe pyar bandha hai...” If we trace back the origin of Raksha Bandhan, we are taken to the era of Aryans. Before going to the battlefield the Aryans used to perform Yagya in order to invoke blessings of the God. Before they embarked onto their journey to the battlefield the womenfolk used to tie sacred thread on their hands so that they protect them as well as the honor of the clan. Since then, even after ages this festival is celebrated with great fervor. Such is the ardency of Raksha Bandhan.
Like most of the other Indian festivals, Raksha Bandhan too is a festival of exchanging gifts. Market places are loaded with gifts of various kinds. Different brands of food launch gift packs specially for the occasion of Rakhi. Now a days, sisters send Rakhi Thali to their brothers through courier sitting abroad and brother in turn send presents. Jewelery shops set forth an exclusive range of jewelery around Raksha Bandhan. Choose from the wide range and pamper your brothers or sisters.
