History Of Raksha Bandhan
Women of all ages have been tying rakhi on their brothers’ hands since time immemorial. Rakhi is one of the most ancient Indian festivals, which has also been used to avert major casualty at wars. According to a popular legend, Alexander’s wife Roxana sent a rakhi for King Porus and asked him to spare Alexander’s life in return. King Porus promised her that if he ever comes face to face with Alexander in the battle, he would walk away without harming him. Another popular legend Rani Karnavati also sent a rakhi to Mughal Emperor Humayun, asking for help to protect her fort in Chittorgarh during a war. Around Bengal partition, Rabindranath Tagore urged both Hindu and Muslim women to tie rakhis on the wrists men belonging from opposite communities, as a symbolic fight against the divide and rule policy of the British.
