The festival of Raksha Bandhan, also known as the festival of Rakhi, is celebrated every year as a tribute to the loving relationship between brothers and sisters. On this day, sisters tie a sacred thread, known as a rakhi, on their brothers' wrists. Brothers, in turn, promise to always protect their sisters from any harm that may come their way. Hence the name Raksha Bandhan, where "Raksha" means protect and "Bandhan" means bond. This year, Rakhi or Raksha Bandhan is falling on a Sunday - August 26. To celebrate this festival, brothers and sisters meet and exchange wishes. Sisters then tie a rakhi on their brothers' wrists, and an exchange of gifts usually takes place. Those who cannot meet exchange wishes over the phone and on the Internet.
