List of Most Beautiful Rakhi in the World
Growing up with a sibling is a whole roller-coaster ride but there is nothing more beautiful than this very same relationship. Not only do you have a friend for life but also someone you can count on, no matter what. This person isn’t just family. Your sibling is your protector, guide and partner in crime too.
Those who have siblings would surely agree to having endless fights while growing up. The words ‘I hate you’, ‘You are so annoying’, ‘Mom and Dad love me more’ or the favorite among them, ‘You’re adopted/picked up from the gutter’, is common in every household. Outgrowing this phase, you develop an amazing bond with the same person you once couldn’t stand. It is for the protection of this sacred relation, that Rakhis are tied.
Raksha Bandhan, as we know, is an important festival that celebrates the bond of protection and care between a brother and his sister (including cousins). In this traditional Hindu ceremony, sisters of all ages tie a talisman, or amulet, called the Rakhi, around the wrists of their brothers, thereby symbolically protecting them.
It also entrusts the brother with the responsibility of protection and potential care of his sister. Rakhis are also tied on the brother’s wife’s wrist to grow that protective bond.
Sisters of course love this festival because they receive lots of gifts from their brothers and sisters-in-law but at the same time, they go all out when it comes to choosing the best Rakhis in the world for their brothers.
