Raksha Bandhan bonding cherished
The eternal bonding of the brother and sister love has been a natural phenomenon across the world. In India it takes center stage as the family bondings and close relationships are the epicenter of our society. Today is the day of bonding and Raksha Bandhan celebrated on this day is only affirming the bonding of siblings. On this full moon day in the Hindu Shravan month the sister ties a colourful thread around the wrist of her brother for his protection with love and affection all through their existence. She sweetens his mouth as a part of the celebrations. While the brother gifts her with an assurance that he would honor her requests. All said and done the Raksh Bhandhan once a festival of the Northern parts of the country has crossed barriers and traveled across the lengths and the breadths of the nation.
Raksh Bandhan is not restricted to any faith or religion and it is universal call for solidarity. Infact most MNCs have made this occasion for letting their employees vibe well between themselves. And many employees tie the Rakhi's around the wrists of the male colleagues. All this will be seldom in headlines but they are equally dominant. This also improves work place ethics aiding to progress. And this goes on to add the opinion of many youths that the friendship band is a global cousin to Raksha Bandhan.
History says that the mark of Rakhi has been celebrated even in the past. As per an interesting jottings Alexander the emperor in the 326 BC had invaded India. And at one point was contemplating over the strengths and courage of Indian King Porous. And as he was in two minds his wife sensing his thoughts secretly sent a Rakhi to King Porous, which implied that her family must be protected. As the battle proceeded, at one point King Porous was to slay the emperor and on noticing his Rakhi, refrained. Such is the power of the colorful bonding in the thread on the wrist. The pages of Indian history testify that the Rajput and Maratha queens have sent Rakhis even to Mughal kings who, despite their differences, have assuaged their Rakhi-sisters by offering help and protection at critical moments and honoured the fraternal bond.
As per the Hindu mythology Lord Yama who was bestowed with the death portfolio among gods had a sister Yamuna, who was a river Goddess. And on this day where ever the Lord was, he would hasten up to his sister. Inturn she would shower him with affection and tie the Rakhi around his wrist. Moved by the ecstasy of the occasion the Lord granted protection to all brothers who had celebrated the occasion with their sisters, says the myth.
Well the celebrations takes its universal form with even Rakhi Special cakes being introduced by the bakeries in the metros. These days living in gated communities Rakhi are also tied on the wrists of close friends and neighbors, which underscores the need for a harmonious social life. On the whole Raksha Badhan is an occasion to vibe with relations and friends while the bonding, love and affections fills the air around such gatherings proving 'all Indians are my brothers and sisters,' Jai Hind.
