The love shared between brothers and sisters is something that can't be put into words.
It is highly valued all around the globe.
This bond is especially significant in India, where a whole festival celebrates the love between brothers and sisters.
This Hindu festival, known as Raksha Bandhan, is celebrated throughout India and other South Asian nations like Nepal to recognise the importance of the sibling relationship.
The festivities of Raksha Bandhan include the exchange of rakhis, or sacred threads, as well as presents, feasts, and puja.
Raksha Bandhan is observed on the Hindu lunar calendar's full moon day in the month of Shravana, which corresponds roughly to the Gregorian month of August.
This year, the auspicious beginning of Raksha Bandhan begins at 9:28 a.m. on August 11 and lasts until 21:14 p.m. Raksha Bandhan is celebrated on the full moon (Purnima) of the Hindu calendar month of Shravan.
The best time to tie a rakhi is between 8:51 p.m. and 9:12 p.m., known as the shubh muhurat.
