JCO Event Announcement-Rakhi ~ The Thread of Love

Made n Enjoyed
Hello readers,

Rakhi (raksha bandhan) is basically a sacred thread of protection embellished with the love and affection of a sister for her brother. This day is also known as Raksha Bandhan and celebrated on the full moon day of the Hindu month of Shravana in India and all over the world by every Hindu.
This frail of thread of Rakhi (raksha bandhan) is considered stronger than iron chains as it binds the most beautiful relationship in an inseparable bond of love and trust.

On the day of Rakhi festival, the sister ties Rakhi on the wrist of her brother and both make prayer to God for the well being of each other. Sisters perform 'aarti' and put tilak on the forehead of her brother. In return, brothers make promise to take care of his sister under all circumstances. Usually, brothers gift something to the sister to mark the occasion. The mirth that surrounds the festival is unsurpassed. Amidst the merriment the rituals are also followed with great devotion.
