B +Ve!!

We celebrate ‘Raksha Bandhan’ every year. The ritual is observed on the full moon day of the Hindu month of Shravan’. This day is also known as ‘Rakhi Poornima’ or ‘Shravan Poornima’. The word ‘poornima’ means a full moon night. This day has a great significance on everybody’s life. Let’s revisit our history and mythology once more.

HINDU MYTHOLOGY:

Like all Indian festivals, this too has a myriad of stories and legends regarding its origin. Some of these stories can be traced back to Indian mythology and even the puranic times. Raksha Bandhan is also referred to in the epic tale of Mahabharata when Lord Krishna advised Yudhishthir to perform the ceremony to protect himself and his people from war. Kunti (the mother of Pandavas) tied a rakhi to her grandson Abhimanyu and Draupadi tied a rakhi on the wrist of Lord Krishna.
