Raksha Bandhan is a traditional festival in Indian culture. The festival is a symbol of the relationship between brothers and sisters. Sisters tie Rakhi, a beautifully embellished thread on their brother's wrist in hope for their health, and brothers pledge to protect their sisters from all evil. With time the festival has taken a gender-neutral turn, and now people all over the world ahead of the caste and creed celebrate Raksha Bandhan in their way to celebrate human bondings, relationships, and a sense of togetherness by seeking and giving protection.
