Raksha Bandhan – Plan Your Rakhi Gift Now
Rakhi or Raksha Bandhan needs no introduction in India. As the sacred festival that celebrates the brother – sister bond, Rakhi is a much-anticipated event for most families. The anticipation of a wonderful RAKHI GIFT adds to the excitement. Scheduled this year on 26th August 2018, it’s about time to start planning the big occasion.
HISTORY OF RAKSHA BANDHAN
So how did the tradition of tying a Rakhi around brother’s wrist by sisters come into being? Well, there are many legends which may be able to answer this for you. There are myths and legends based on Indra Dev, Santoshi Maa, Krishna-Draupadi, Yama-Yamuna and King Bali & Goddess Lakshmi with respect to how Raksha Bandhan is celebrated.
MEANING OF RAKHI
A sister ties the Rakhi thread around the wrist of her brothers & pray for the success and well-being of her brother. She also puts red tilak on the brothers’ forehead and offers them a sweet. In return, the brothers pledge to always care for & protect their sister. The brothers, then, goes on to offer the Rakhi Gift for their sister.
RAKSHA BANDHAN & SECULARITY
Raksha Bandhan has gone on to become a true secular festival with people of various communities celebrating this grand brother-sister event. Originally a Hindu festival, it is now celebrated across India by most communities. It’s also celebrated in some of the neighbouring Hindu countries like Nepal. What’s amazing to note is that the concept of Raksha Bandhan has crossed the “same-blood” barrier & one can now find even the non-biological brothers & sisters celebrating Raksha Bandhan with equal flavour. This has also given rise to a modern parlance – Rakhi Brother & Rakhi Sister. This is usually used to refer to one’s brother/sister with whom one doesn’t have a blood relation, rather more of a symbolic relationship.
PREPARATIONS FOR RAKHI BY SISTERS
The preparations for Rakhi begin much before the actual festival. The sisters visit shops to buy colourful Rakhis and a set of Roli-Chawal for her brother. If the siblings are geographically separated, sisters generally mail or courier the package to her brother. If the brother is younger to the sister, the sister typically also sends some Rakhi gifts to brother, with popular gifts being chocolates, tech-toys & fashion accessories. For example, our Bajrangi Silver Pendant was a huge draw for Raksha-Bandhan gift during last year’s Rakhi Gifting. As with any other traditions, the norms are changing & we are witnessing sisters sending gifts for brothers like religious pendants, gold cuff links, men’s ear studs and other varieties of Men’s Jewellery increasingly as Rakhi Gifts for brothers.
1. Divine Gold Rakhi Cum Pendant
Sisters, listen up. What if you could send something special as Rakhi to your brother? Not the usual shimmery glittery ones.
