Rakhi 2017: "Bond of Love" between a brother and his sister
Published in Alriyadh on 03 - 08 - 2017

India is gearing up to celebrate the festival of Raksha Bandhan.
This year, it fall on 7th August, 2017. The day marks the bond of love, faith and protection between a brother and his sister.
On this occasion, sisters apply a tilak on their brother's forehead, and tie a beautiful thread around their wrist, and finally conclude the ritual by offering him delicious sweets. Raksha Bandhan literally translates into 'the bond of protection'.
As the sister ties the thread around her brother's wrist, he pledges to protect her against all adversities in life, and showers her with blessings.
