Happy Raksha Bandhan!!!

Dear Readers, 




Defenceadda wishes you all a very Happy Raksha Bandhan!!!

India is a land of festivals. Festivals are the celebration of affection, brotherhood and majestic emotions. Amongst all, the festival of Raksha Bandhan has a vital significance of its own.  The meaning of Raksha Bandhan in Sanskrit is "the tie or knot of protection". The word Raksha means protection, while Bandhan intends to tie. It is observed in the Hindu calendar month of Sravana, and typically falls in August every year. This is an occasion to strengthen admiration, responsibility, love and sacred feeling of fraternity.

This festival begins when sisters tie Rakhi on the wrist of their brothers and pray for his well-being. In turn, the brother also wishes her a good life and accepts the love with a commitment to stand by his sister through all the good and bad times. She offers him gifts and sweets. He gives her a return gift that signifies the physical acceptance of her love, remembrance of their togetherness and his promise. This festival marks a special day for the beautiful relation of Brother Sister. Brother and sister. This is a sweet and salty relation of love, fights over small things, sharing, caring and a lot more. This is a special day for this special relation and an opportunity for brothers and sisters to show their love and affection for each other.


It is an occasion for a gathering and celebration. People prepare delicious meals, amazing sweets and exchange presents. And those who cannot manage to meet each other, send rakhi cards and e-rakhis through the internet, even perform the rituals on video calls. All thanks to advanced technology!! Spend time with your family and celebrate this Rakhi with love, laughter and happiness.

Happy Raksha Bandhan to all !!!
