Raksha Bandhan, (the bond of protection) or Rakhi is a festival primarily observed for celebrating the relationship between brothers (shaurya), cousins and sisters (shreya). It is also called Rakhi Purnima in most of India. In fact, the popular practice of Raksha Bandhan has its historical associations also. The Rajput queens practised the custom of sending rakhi threads to neighbouring rulers as token of brotherhood.The central ceremony involves the tying of a rakhi (sacred thread) by a sister on her brother's wrist. The festival falls on the full moon day (Shravan Poornima) of the Shravan month of the Hindu calendar.
Rakshna Bandhan is celebrated in our school by tying Rakhi between the students to develop their botherhoodness and oneness among them.
