Holi, Diwali, Rakshabandhan, Dussehra, etc. are our main festivals. Of these festivals, the festival of Rakshabandhan is the one I love the most. This festival is a symbol of the innocent and selfless love of siblings. The simplicity that it has, along with the pure love of brother and sister, is not there in any other festival. There is the light of lamps in Diwali. Holi colors and gulal are celebrated. There is a lot of pomp on the day of Dussehra, but for celebrating the festival of Rakshabandhan, nothing is needed other than pure heartfelt love.
The festival of Rakhi is celebrated on Shravani Poornima. The weather is also very pleasant at that time. As if lightning in the sky, your brother is seen to show his imperfection to tie rakhi to the clouds. This festival reminds every brother of his duty towards his sister. Sister ties Rakhi with love to her brother and brother accepts the responsibility of protecting her sister. Rakhi strengthens the sacred bond of affection between brother and sister.
Till now folk have believed that being an abla, the woman ties her rakhi and puts the burden of her protection on her brother. But I know that she bears the burden of not only protecting her brother but also protecting all the women. By tying a rakhi, she spells strength and courage to her brother and wishes him well. Therefore, such a holy festival should be celebrated with great enthusiasm and joy.
The threads of Rakhi have created history. Rajmata Karmavati of Chittor sent Mughal emperor Humayun as Rakhi and made him his brother, and he too went to Chittor to protect sister Karmavati in times of crisis. Humayun decided to go to war with Emperor Bahadur Shah of Gujarat. It was the power of Rakhi that Humayun, being a Muslim himself, fought a Muslim to protect the honor of a Hindu Narrow.
My only sister lives far away from me. Therefore, when she comes here on the day of Rakshabandhan, then there is no place of happiness for me. Memories of childhood flare up and tears of joy flow down. Sister’s love, affection, and auspicious feelings give me a new life. I forget all my sorrows and shortages and I experience bliss. The festival of Rakshabandhan always refreshes the memory of a sister who says, ‘Brother, do not forget my Rakhi’s bond’. So this is my favorite festival.
