The bond of protection

Indian culture, tradition and practices # 6

Today is Rakhi in India. I remember receiving Rakhi's in the mail when I was a young boy from my sisters and cousins. I used to wear them all on my wrist and keep them safe for several days before it falls apart.

Those of you who do not know what Rakhi is, it is a festival in India. If you like to read more about Rakhi (or Raksha Bandhan - bond of protection) there's a site on wikipedia at this link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rakhi
