Raksha Bandhan: The bond of love and support

Raksha Bandhan: The bond of love and support

August 10 2022 TalktoAngel 0 comments 438 Views

Beloved I offer to you

In tender allegiance anew,

A bracelet of floss, Let me twist

Its tassels, vermilion and blue

And violet, to girdle your wrist.


Accept this bright gage from my hand,

Let you heart its sweet speech understand,

The ancient high symbol and end

Is wrought on each gold-threaded strand,

The fealty of friend unto friend.


A garland how frail of design,

Our spirits to clasp and entwine

In devotion unstained and unbroken,

How slender a circle and sign

Of secret, deep pledges unspoken!


Sarojini Naidu – The Feather of Dawn


One such significant event that honours the love and devotion between a brother and a sister is Raksha Bandhan. Nothing compares to the closeness as that between siblings! One's youth and all that happens after that are profoundly changed by growing up with siblings. Rakhsha Bandhan was originally intended to honour the relationship between brothers and sisters. By symbolically tying a Rakhi (a thread), the sister was delegating to the brother the duty of providing for her safety. What originally stood for necessary masculine protection has gradually changed. It has evolved into the metaphorical concept of safeguarding and taking care of your sibling's comfort and safety. However, when we talk about sibling relationship, they are crucial for our social, emotional, and cognitive growth in addition to being necessary for companionship.

Sibling relationships can play out in unusual ways in nurturing individuals’ mental health as siblings are often a child's primary playmate and an adult's closest friend. It is among the most powerful links we may have since we are born and have a significant impact on how we develop emotionally in our life. Our siblings teach us vital life skills, guide us to establish bond with other people, discover our identity, and teach us how to negotiate in relationships. Sometimes, the relationship amongst sibling is not so good on account of sibling rivalry, the event of sharing, caring and performing rituals with intervention and cordial support of parents do alter and help in modifying behaviour, Rakshbandhan is one such occasion to celebrate the love, passion and care in family. A strong bond with your sister or brother promotes both your mental and physical health and helps you live a long and happy life. They not only encourage us to take better care of ourselves but also assist us when we are ill or under stress.Having a sibling might help us to preserve some of our early and fondest memories. It can be a fight over a toy or sleeping with parents, frequent teasing, and playing your favourite game, trip with them or fighting in the backseat of the car.
