For the forthcoming festival of Rakshabandhan on August 7, the markets of Kharibari and the border areas of Galgalia have been stocked with varieties of rakhis and gifts.
Many sisters were seen purchasing the rakhis from the markets. Anshu, who also came to purchase rakhis, shared how Rakshabandhan is an important festival for brothers and sisters.
The festival of Rakshabandhan marks the oath of protection. Sisters tie the rakhi on their brother’s wrist and wishing for his long and prosperous life. In return, the brother promises to protect the sister throughout his life.
