5 Lovely Gifting Ideas for the Raksha Bandhan
As a child you might have fought with your sibling. He might have pulled your pigtails or eaten your stashed away goodies. She might have hidden your favourite Hot Wheels car or bitched about your girlfriend behind your back. But there would have been times when you had defended your sibling or taken the punishment on his or her behalf. Yes, that is the love between a brother and a sister. Pure and unconditional.
But, did you know, this festival of Rakhi goes deep into history and mythology? Let’s see how Raksha Bandhan evolved:
Krishna and Draupadi – Lord Krishna cut his finger, while others present were still thinking on how to react, Draupadi simply tore a part of her sari and bandaged his finger with it. In return, Krishna protected Draupadi’s decency when she was disrobed publicly in King Dhritrashtra’s court.
Rani Karnawati and Emperor Humayun – Rani Karnawati of Chittor sent a rakhi to Emperor Humayun and requested him to save her town from the evil eye of Bahadur Shah of Gujarat. The Emperor touched by the gesture marched towards Chittor to save his sister and her town.
Alexander the Great and King Puru – This reference of rakhi dates back to 330 BC when Alexander had invaded India. Though Alexander was a mighty king, he would not have lasted against the Indian King Puru. Alexander’s wife on hearing about the rakhi festival approached King Puru and tied a rakhi on his wrist. King Puru accepted her as his sister and refrained from fighting Alexander, and thus lost to him.
