During the incident of Lord Krishna beheaded Shishupala by the Sudarshan Chakra, his finger was hurt after the Chakra returned to the finger. Then, Draupadi had torn a piece of her sari and wrapped it with his injured finger. Seeing this love like a sister, Lord Krishna promised Draupadi that he would repay her debt when the time comes. This mythological story is linked to the origin of the Rakshabandhan festival. Rakshabandhan is one of the important festivals celebrated worldwide. It is celebrated on the Purnima of Shravan month according to Hindu calendar. Raksha Bandhan, in the Sanskrit language, means the bond of protection, obligation, or care. It is a symbol of love, togetherness and faith between a brother and the sister, celebrated to strengthen the bond between them. On this day, Sisters prepare the pooja thali with Diyas, Kumkum, Chawal, sweets and rakhi. Sisters tie a rakhi on their brother’s wrist, wishing good health and long life for them. The brothers, on the other hand, bless their sisters and pledge to take care and protect their sisters from any harm under any circumstances. Raksha Bandhan is a time for love and pampering for the sisters especially. You, also, can give a wonderful gift to your sister or brother on this occasion. In today's trying time, there can be no better gift than dry fruits.
