Rakhsha Bandhan is the festival of sisterhood. It celebrates the bond of unbreakable love and affection between a brother and his sister and their unconditional support towards each other in times of need. While the white thread is the symbol of “Raksha”, it is also an expression of the sister’s promise to her brother that she’ll protect him against all odds, just as the thread protects precious items from breaking apart. So, strengthen your bond of love on this Raksha Bandhan and celebrate it with your family even if you are apart.
