Why Rakshabandhan/Rakhi is celebrated

Raksha Bandhan the traditional ceremony/festival is all about the love that brother and sister share with each other.

No matter the numerous fights that befall between brother and sister, they all get resolved on this auspicious day. “No grudges held”.

There are numerous stories as to why rakhi is celebrated, here I am sharing some of the most interesting stories for you to read:

Santoshi Maa

  Lord Ganesha had two sons, named “Shubh and Labh”. On an auspicious day, Lord Ganesha’s sister Manasa came to tie him a rakhi.

On seeing this his sons asked him to get them a sister, thus Ganesha created goddess Santoshi Maa from the divine flames that emerged from his consorts “Riddhi and Siddhi”.

Since then, Santoshi Maa used to tie rakhi to her brothers Shubh and Labh, and this is how the festival of rakhi came into existence.

Rani karnavati and Humayun

It is said once Bahadur Shah Zafar was about to attack Chittoor, Rani karnavati could not face the giant army of Shah Zafar and seek for help from the Mughal Emperor Humayun.

Rani Karnavti sent a rakhi enclosed with a message requesting for help. The Mughal emperor left for charter with his troops but it was too late by then.

What’s better than to gift some personalized rakhi gifts for married sister.

Some cool personalized gift options could be:

  1. Personalized Key Chains
  2. Gift Cards
  3. Gift Hampers
  4. Personalized Coffe Mugs
  5. Personalized photo frames
