Raksha Bandhan: A thread celebrates brother-sister love


In Pakistan, Raksha Bandhan is celebrated like every other country. Our Hindu friends rejoice in the day securely and contently. 


Raksha Bandhan is observed on the full-moon day or Purnima in the Hindu calendar month of Shravan.It is a reminiscing moment when the sister of Lord Krishna tore a piece of cloth and tied it to his bleeding finger; since then, it has become a sacred thread. However, this does not bind a thread only but love and bond between brother and sister.

In Karachi, it is celebrated in a meaningful way as the women and girls visit the three big temples of the city: Shree Lakshmi Narayan Temple, the Shree Swaminarayan Temple, and the Shree Ratneshwar Mahadev Temple for puja. As the day approaches, stalls and stores are flooded with Rakhis. Women purchase thread and tie it to their brothers. It is not necessary to tie on only blood-related brothers, but anyone a girl considers her brother.
