The festival of Raksha Bandhan is celebrated on Shravan Poornima or the full moon day in the month of Sawan in the Hindu calendar. As per tradition, sisters tie the auspicious thread known as Rakhi on the hands of their brothers after performing aarti in their names with the hope that they prosper and succeed in life. The brothers, on the other hand, shower love on their sisters with gifts and vows to protect them till their last breath. However, Raksha Bandhan is today commemorated by siblings irrespective of their gender as the festival signifies celebration of love, friendship, trust, gratitude and protection. Besides siblings, a Rakhi is tied even on hands of some special persons as a mark of formally declaring their relationship as a brotherly or sisterly kind so that they can share good and bad times together in the journey of life. Moreover, a Rakhi is also tied by many women to people or things which provide us with security as a token of respect and gratitude. As an occasion where emotions are celebrated in abundance, you can share your Rakhis or gifts to your siblings or to your special people with a handwritten note filled with sweet messages along with deeply heart-touching quotes. This will make the festival of Raksha Bandhan a special one in the truest sense as words can have the impact to move your heart with emotions of love, compassion and can bring a smile to your lips and thereby making the Rakhis and gifts feel more pleasurable.
