HappY Rakshabandhan to all

Today is the day when our sisters tie us Rakhi. Today is the day that every brother renews his vow to support and protect his siter and deepens his love and extends his blessings to his sister.

Today is the day when sisters tie a simple thread on the wrist of their brothers. A simple thread which symbolises a sister's unparalleled love for her brother.

Wishing all a happy rakshabandhan!!

but the history of rakhi (not gulzar/sawant) goes back to Mahabharat wherein Kunti tried to tie Rakhi to Abhimanyu and he cut it off with his sword...an ill omen...and the rest is well known...so its not limited to brother-sister affair...I think a wife can tie to her husband

this brings about an interesting question

say, if Lakshmana had a sister (unmarried and beautiful) instead of Shatrughna...and say Ravana kidnapped Lakshmana's sister and say some other Rakshasa kidnaps Sita...then whom will Ram fight first, other guy or Ravana?

Raksha (protect) bandhan (binding) means you are in bound to protect someone...the word does not describe anything about sister

The Mahabharat story is probably unknown to you...

http://www.gifts.sereneinteriors.com...a-bandhan.html

and you can find many such links that describe what I say.

So the logical extrapolated interpretation of this event would be that if a grandma can tie "rakhi" to her grandson...why can't wife tie rakhi to her husband...as a reminder of his duties?

http://www.virtualrakhi.com/history.html

This link says that Indra's consort (wife?) tied rakhi to Indra....so does that make Indra a behenc(hod?
