The relationship between brothers and sisters vary all over the world from one culture to another.
In most Occidental cultures, the relationship between siblings maybe strong but it is generally second in position to parental relationship. Or to speak plainly, the bond between the siblings isn’t as strong as that between the child and the parents.
However, in many non-western countries, like that of ours, sibling relation is of more importance than the parental connection to child/children.
Major responsibilities like family functions and taking care of the younger children and educating them with the basic education and household and occupational skills are carried out by siblings in our country. Childcare and protection is usually a shared activity here that takes place in context of other duties like household chores, and other things. This is mainly helpful to parents or those families who are either working full time or otherwise engaged.
This makes the bond between a brother and sister especially special. Because it is not just about growing up together.
During our early years, it is often our elder sibling that stirs admiration within us. In most cases if the age gap between the siblings is too less, it would generally mean that most of their childhood and adulthood would be spent in constant bickering and extreme love between each other. The bond between a brother and sister is truly special, it is like having a best friend in the family, to have someone to share or understand everything that goes on in and out of the family.
In a country with such varied culture and language and beliefs, the relation between siblings is mostly the same. Each culture has their own way of celebrating this bond.
Although, their is nothing specific to the word ‘Rakhi’ which would suggest specific relationship between a brother or sister, the word stands for ‘Protection’ in Hindi.
There are many legends around the origin of ‘Rakshabandhan’. From Rabindranath Tagore who tried to use the festival to propagate the message of love and brotherhood between the Hindus and Muslims.
Although the most famous story is that of Krishna and Draupadi. The story goes that Krishna, had once cut his finger while handling sugarcane. Draupadi on seeing this tore a piece of cloth from her sari and tied around Krishna’s finger. To this Krishna promised to return the favor and protect her when it would be required. This is the story behind Krishna helping Draupadi during her shameful disrobing by the Kauravas.
There are more legends regarding the tradition of Rakhi, and all of them center along the line of honour and protection of the sister.
