Festivals of India
Rakhi is a festival that is dedicated to the love and affection that exists between a beautiful relationship of a brother and a sister. There are so many festivals in India but Rakhi is one that everyone across the country awaits for. All brothers and sisters across all the religions celebrate this day with great enthusiasm. On this day, sisters tie a 'Rakhi', a decorated thread on to their brothers hand and pray for their long life. Brothers, in turn, give their sisters gifts and vow that they will protect and care for them.
