Rakhi 2017: Wishes, WhatsApp Messages, Quotes To Share With Your Siblings

Raksha Bandhan 2017: Let your sibling know how much you love them with these messages and wishes

New Delhi:  The festival of Raksha Bandhan is being celebrated on August 7 this year. On the occasion, sisters tie a sacred thread called rakhi to their brothers' wrists and brothers, in turn, promise they will always protect their sisters. While often the relationship between siblings involves squabbling and gentle teasing, Raksha Bandhan is all about love and actually letting your sibling know what they mean to you. While traditionally celebrated by brothers and sisters, the festival that celebrates the 'bond of protection' has evolved with time. These days, many women tie a rakhi to their sisters, fathers, mothers or even friends who may play the role of a "protector" in their lives. In fact, some brothers are now breaking the tradition and tying rakhi to their sisters. 

Here's a list of Raksha Bandhan messages you can send to your siblings on WhatsApp, Facebook or via SMS:

1. Memories may fade away with time but the love we share as a brother and sister will never fade away, rather it will multiply over the years. Happy Rakhi!

2. All other festivals may be very colourful but no festival is as powerful as Raksha Bandhan. It makes our bond stronger and stronger. Happy Raksha Bandhan!

3. Brothers are like streetlights along the road, they don't make the distance any shorter but they light up the path and make the walk worthwhile. Love you, brother!
