Raksha Bandhan Celebration

Raksha Bandhan Celebration

Raksha bandhan celebration in India happens with a lot of enthusiasm. This festival is especially predominant in North India. South, East, and West India celebrations are carried out by sending gifts and special raksha bandhan messages. The ceremony of tying the sacred thread of rakhi along with wishes form the main part of the rakhi celebrations. In West Bengal, especially in Kolkata this day coincides with the jhoolan purnima. Pictures of sisters lovingly tying rakhi in their brother’s wrists are a common sight. There are unique raksha bandhan celebration ideas and photos available. The history of raksha bandhan goes back to the ancient period when Rani Karnavati, the widowed queen of Chittor sent a rakhi to the Mughal emperor Humayun asking for his help.
