The day of Rakhi is for bonding and fun and a major task on this day is ‘Shopping‘ – sisters purchase rakhis and their protective brothers purchase gifts for their lovely princesses. Then the ritual starts by lighting a diya which symbolises the fire deity. Then the ritual is carried on with prayers, aarti of the brother, and then gifts, hugs, promises, and tempting sweets. This festival nothing but promotes and strengthens the bond between bhaiya and behena.
