Rakshabandhan is one of the biggest festivals in the nation, not many know the reason why the festival is celebrated. Here’s glancing back at the three famous reasons known for the celebration.

We spend a greater part of our lives annoying and loving our siblings. Changing the sugar with salt for their tea or simply hiding the TV remote, not a single day passes by where we don’t disturb and bother our dearest siblings. Yet, when it comes down to an issue or falling into hardship, the main person we immediately ask for help is just our sibling/sister. Regardless of whether it’s to rescue you at 3:00 AM, being a source of genuine sympathy when you get dumped, our brother/ sister is our third parent, an educator and the closest companion. And yes there’s one day devoted to this precious bond, Rakhsha Bandhan.

In spite of the fact that we go through weeks to get the ideal present for our sibling, not many of us know the reason behind the celebration of this festival. Here’s glancing back at 3 famous reasons for the celebration of Rakhi.

Krishna and Draupadi

A bond that our grandmas consistently allude to is that of Lord Krishna and Draupadi. It’s accepted that Lord Krishna hurt his index finger while flinging the Sudharshan Chakra at Sishupala. On seeing this, Draupadi tore a bit of her saree and tied it around the injury to stop the bleeding. Moved by Draupadi’s genuine love for him, the Lord accepting this as an indication of affection and wowed to perfect her. Lord Krishna proceeds to prove his statement by protecting Draupadi during the Cheer Haran by the Kauravas.

Lord Indra and Indrani

Not simply the adoration among a brother-sister, the celebration likewise commends the affection among husband and spouse. As indicated by these old stories, Lord Indra was losing to King Bali among divine beings and devils. Lord Indra’s significant other, Indrani petitioned Lord Vishnu who at that point gave her a sacred thread that she tied around her better half’s wrist. Consequently, Indra was honored with forces that enabled him to win against them and the thread proceeded to turn into a symbol of adoration.

Lord Porus and Alexander the Great’s better half, Roxana

Legend has it that during Alexander’s invasion to India in 326 BC, his better half Roxana had sent a holy thread to King Porus as a solicitation to not hurt her husband in the field. It’s regularly accepted that on the front line, it’s this thread was a steady reminder to Porus that prevented him from straightforwardly assaulting Alexander.
