Dear Friend Vasu,
How are you in london.I am fine and ho
pe the same for you.I am very excited to tell you about the indian festival raksha bandhan.Raksha Bandhan (Bengali: রাখী বন্ধন Hindi: रक्षा बन्धन) is also called Rakhi Purnima (রাখীপূর্ণিমা) or simply Rakhi or "Rakhri", in many parts of India.

The festival is a Hindu festival and is also a secular festival which celebrates the love and duty between brothers and sisters. The festival is also popularly used to celebrate any brother-sister relationship between men and women who are relatives or biologically unrelated.

The festival is observed by Jains too,as a religious festival as on Raksha Bandhan, Jain priests give threads to devotees.

The festival is also celebrated by many communities as a secular festival. This secular aspect is observed among all people, irrespective of their religion, in West Bengal and Punjab. Various fairs are held in Punjab to mark the occasion.

On Raksha Bandhan, sisters tie a rakhi (sacred thread) on her brother's wrist. This symbolizes the sister's love and prayers for her brother's well-being, and the brother's lifelong vow to protect her. The festival falls on the full moon day (Shravan Poornima) of the Shravan month of the Hindu lunisolar Nepali calendar.
