Brothers and sisters are eagerly waiting for Raksha Bandhan to commemorate the lovely bond between them. Rakhi has a very special meaning; it signifies the pure bond between brothers and sisters. Despite the itty bitty pranks, tears and complaints, nothing is more lovable than this bond. Raksha Bandhan is derived from Raksha, a Sanskrit word that means protection and Bandhan which means a bond. This festival signifies the love, protection, loyalty, care and commitment a brother and sister have for each other. This year, Raksha Bandhan will be observed on August 22, when sisters will tie rakhis on their brothers’ wrists. On this beautiful day, here are some Rakhi wishes, messages and quotes to share with your siblings.
