Raksha Bandhan in Bangalore

Raksha Bandhan the festival of joy and happiness is celebrated with much enthusiasm in Bangalore, the Silicon valley of India. Apart from the festivals like Lakshmi Pooja, Ganesh Chaturthi, Raksha Bandhan also holds much importance for the city. The entire city gets geared up for the festival much in advance thereby making the celebrations all the more special.

The markets in Bangalore get embellished with different Rakhi decorative items, beautiful rakhi threads and different kinds of rakhi gifts. People from all the city flood the markets much in advance to prepare for the festival. Brothers and sisters visit the shops to arrange for the rakhi celebrations according to their own likes and dislikes.

Though the Rakhi festival is better known as the festival of North India but then also much importance is given to the celebrations of Raksha Bandhan in Bangalore. The celebrations start early in the day with brothers and sisters getting ready early in the day for the Rakhi Puja. Sisters apply tilak on their brother's forehead and tie rakhi thread on their wrists thereby praying for the long life of their brothers.



The brothers on the other hand gift their sisters some exquisite rakhi presents and give them a promise to protect them for their whole lives. Exchange of sweets make the celebrations all the more special. After the Rakhi puja the entire family gets together for spending some time with each other. The brothers and sisters who are far away from each other exchange the rakhi greetings with the help of mails and letters. Nowadays even some online websites help people to send their rakhi greetings to each other through internet. This reduces the distance between the brothers and sisters who are not able to meet each other on this special day of Rakhsha Bandhan.
