A holy festival of the Hindus, Raksha Bandhan celebrates the love between a brother and a sister. On this day, sisters tie a sacred thread around their brothers' wrists with a belief that they would protect them all the days of their lives. In turn, brothers make the promise and present their sisters with gifts and sweets. This heart-warming festival brings families together, after which people make merry and exchange sweets and presents.
