7th August 2017 Raksha Bandhan
August 7, 2017 @ 12:00 am - 12:00 pm UTC+0
Raksha Bandhan also called Rakhi Purnima or simply Rakhi in many parts of India and Nepal, is a Hindu religious and secular festival. The festival celebrates the love and duty between brothers and sisters. On Raksha Bandhan, sisters tie a rakhi (sacred thread) on her brother’s wrist. This symbolizes the sister’s love and prayers for her brother’s well-being, and the brother’s lifelong vow to protect her.
