The festival of Raksha Bandhan is the essence of brother sister attachment and sharing. This ritual of tying Rakhi has become an inherent part of our lives. On the day of Raksha Bandhan sisters visit their brother's house to tie Rakhi (the bond of love). The sister is then bestowed with gifts before leaving. Modes of sending Rakhi may have transformed the method of expression may differ. What remains unchanged for centuries is the eternal bond of love, caring and sharing.
With time the traditions and festivals get modified according to the
contemporary lifestyles. The bond of Rakhi pulls the siblings together
and this explains the essence of Raksha Bandhan. Changing times and
technology bring with them changes the way we celebrate festivals and
Raksha Bandhan is no exception to it. As the time passed, sisters
started sending Rakhis by post and Rakhi greetings through special Rakhi
cards. This tradition of sending Rakhi cards started a new trend.
Like all other festivals, Rakhi greeting cards too have their specialty
attached with them. Rakhi cards voice the deepest emotions which are
integral to the festival. The Rakhi cards are sent along with a Rakhi
and tilak. The fashion of Rakhi cards has made it easy for everyone to
express his emotions in his own words. Handmade cards for Raksha Bandhan
have their unique appeal and touch. In fact, these days they are being
preferred by a large number of people.
With the coming of information technology, e-Rakhis and e-Rakhi cards
came into being. This has added another facet to this beautiful and
pious festival. Internet has rendered exchange of cards and gifts easy
across the borders. Whatever the mode of cards they have kept the aura
of Raksha Bandhan intact.
