Rakhi or as we like to call it Raksha Bandhan, is the sacred bond between siblings. Yes, the same siblings that we fought with over the TV remote, the same siblings that helped cover up our mistakes with our parents, the same siblings we love as much as we hate, the same sibling we stole chocolates from and the same sibling that always protected us from life. There is nothing more valuable to a brother than his sister’s love and nothing more valuable to a sister than the security her brother gives her. And raksha bandhan is nothing but an iteration of this fact.
Raksha Bandhan literally translates into a bond of protection. Mythology has found references to rakhis being tied to brothers by their sisters on varying occasions, but we can’t pin point to a specific time in mythology or history. What we do know is that rakhi celebrations are generally a lot of fun and full of love between brothers and sisters. The ritual involves sisters tying rakhis on their brothers’ wrist, while praying for their wellbeing and health. Post, which, brothers give gifts to their sisters.
Now, the gifting part is the toughest job for brothers. The whole process of finding that perfect gift that they can give their sisters to show them exactly how much they mean to them and encapsulate the unsaid promise they make to each other is quite the feat. They want to gift their sisters something they will cherish for their lives and at the same time serve as a constant reminder of the bond they share with their sibling. And what better way to achieve this than by gifting her jewellery? As any brother will know, women love jewellery and the most auspicious day to celebrate their camaraderie should be marked by something that she will hold dear to her heart for years to come.
