This festival is not a ritual, custom and tradition that can change over time but its style of celebration has become contemporary. Since ages, Raksha Bandhan is being celebrated in the same way. All the traditions are followed with the same enthusiasm.

Rakhi festival is the celebration of the chaste bond of love amongst the siblings. Everyone start preparing for this festival much in advance. About a month before the commencement of raksha bandhan, you can see fancy and colorful rakhis in every market. Ladies start shopping for rakhi and rakhi gifts quite early. Its like a carnival all across India.

On the festival day, sister tie rakhi on brothers wrist and doing puja and in turn brothers give their sisters a token of love in the form of gift and exchange sweets.
