Raksha Bandhan, the pious festival of brother and sister is about to come soon this year. It is the popular festival among the Hindus, especially in India. Many Muslims families have also accepted this festival and moving towards secularism. Christian families also take part in Raksha Bandhan and this is celebrated worldwide. We celebrate this festival every year with all the craze and fun but have you thought of what these words- Raksha and Bandhan means? Raksha denotes the protection and Bandhan goes for fastening or making the bond stronger. Yeah, that's why Sisters ties a thread or fancy rakhis on the fist of their brothers. Markets get full of designer rakhis, gifts, and many more goodies. Sisters become ready to celebrate it at its fully-fledged state. They bring the best rakhi and accessories. Brothers also get ready with the gifts. Then Sisters ties amulet or thread, which is known as rakhi. Brother offers a token of love in the form of gift or money. The protection is formally offered by the brother to their loving sister.
In our Hindu community, every festival has its unique importance and a story associated with the celebration of the festival. There is a similar story behind this also. Lord Ganesha had two sons, Shubha and Labha. The two boys become sad that they had no sister to celebrate Raksha Bandhan with. They ask their father Ganesha for a sister, but to no avail. Finally, saint Narada comes who successfully persuades Ganesha that a daughter will enrich him as well as his sons. Ganesha agreed and created a daughter named Santoshi Maa by divine flames that emerged from Ganesh's wives, Riddhi (Amazing) and Siddhi (Perfection). Thereafter, Shubha Labha (literally "Holy Profit") had a sister named Santoshi Maa (literally "Goddess of Satisfaction"), to tie Rakhi over Raksha Bandhan.
