Rakhi symbolizes the love and affection shared by a brother and a sister. On this day, the siblings forget all their differences and celebrate their bond by tying the knot of eternal love and protection. The day is observed as the sister prepares a Thali which has Rakhi, Tilak, Diya and sweets in it.
The ceremony begins with the application of kumkum/vermilion by the sister on her brother’s forehead. This is followed by the application of akshat over the kumkum. After this, Arti is performed in honor of her brother while the sister prays for her brother’s long and healthy life. Then, the sister ties Rakhi on her Bhaiya and Bhabhi’s wrist with a belief that they will always protect her support her. As a part of the ceremony, the brother offers gifts to her sister while they sweeten each other’s mouth. Sweets play a major role on this auspicious day and also add up to the sweetness in the bond shared by the brother and the sister.
As sweets hold great importance on this day, here are some delightful treats that will help the siblings make this day sweeter and merrier.
