Friday, July 31, 2015 7:25:30 AM America/Chicago
A bond between siblings cannot be defined as it is beyond love and compassion. Especially when it is between a brother and his sister, the bond becomes one that has many attributes attached with it. Between two brothers of two sisters, the relationship is more leaned towards competition and achievements. The sole reason is that if one can do it, then the other must follow suit. That is not the case when the siblings are of separate genders.
Moreover, when a brother is elder sibling, the sister is always treated like a child and is cared and protected for. The elder brother is someone whom she looks up to, be it for advice or for sheer pampering. Sisters are the jewels of their brother’s eyes and brothers make sure that their sisters are always cared for no matter what.
The Hindu culture has a tradition called Rakshabandhan, the one day when the sister ties a thread on her brother’s wrist and wishes that he protects her, cares for her and gives her the best of wishes for her life. Although it is just a thread and has no significant meaning, it is a symbolic gesture that has a lot of holding in the Hindu culture.
For centuries, this tradition of tying a RAKHI on the wrists of brothers has been carrying on that not only signifies a strong bond between a brother and his sister, but it also carries a lot of meaning considering the responsibilities a brother has to carry out.
Tying of the rakhi by the sister is normally followed by a token of appreciation from the brother in the form of a gift. It does not matter if the brother is elder to the sister or younger, the ceremony is complete only after the brother gives his sister a gift to remember.
