On this occasion on the full moon day in the month of Shraavan, as per the Hindi calendar, women tie a thread to their brothers symbolising their eternal tie and pray for them. The brothers vow to protect their sisters and also give a token sum or gift. As per tradition, sisters visit their brothers' homes and perform an aarti on them.
But in these modern times, it is not easy for the siblings to stick to age-old practices. Some might have their brothers/sisters abroad or in another city or may be too busy to visit them, in case of such an eventuality they can always wish them by SMS.
"My brother's a legal advisor for a multinational bank and he is likely to be in Mumbai for Rakhi. Hope to SMS him this time," says Aradhana Sharma, an insurance agent in Saket.
