Raksha Bandhan

August

Delhi, Delhi

Legend says that Rakshabandhan originated when Rani Karnavati, the widowed Queen of Chittor, sent a Rakhi to Emperor Humayun, seeking his protection to defend her kingdom from Bahadur Shah. Traditionally, sisters visit their brother’s houses on Rakshabandhan day and tie a sacred thread (Rakhi) around their wrists and seek protection from them, while praying for his long and prosperous life. The brothers in turn, treat their sisters to a scrumptious meal, offer eternal protection and shower them with gifts.

Weeks before the Hindu festival of Rakshabandhan arrives, markets see a thrill of activity and Delhi lights up with excitement as girls purchase Rakhi’s, order fancy sweets and squeal with delight as intricately patterned henna is applied on their palms.
