Raksha Bandhan or Rakshabandhan is a popular, traditionally Hindu festival that celebrates the sacred relationship between a brother and sister. The word “ Raksha” means protection and “ Bandhan” means to tie. It is celebrated on the full moon in the month of Shravan in the lunar calendar. On this day, sisters of all ages tie the Rakhi around her brother’s wrist, symbolically protecting them, receiving a gift in return, and traditionally investing the brothers with a share of the responsibility of their potential care.
This year, the festival of Rakhi will fall on 3rd August 2020. Rakhi is tied on the right hand of the brother. The festival of rakhi brings the entire family together and strengthens the bond of love and affection between the siblings. Students from all classes participated in the competition and made colorful rakhi’s. They used decorative threads, stars, mirrors, pearls, and flowers for making beautiful rakhi’s. The Raksha Bandhan festival is observed by other Hindus of Nepal during one of the days of the Tihar (or Diwali) festival. The festival is observed by Shaiva Hindus and is popularly known in the Newar community as Gunhu Punhi.
