| Raksha Bandhan - 9th August
The annual "festival" of Raksha Bandhan, which is meant to commemorate
the abiding ties between a brother and sister, is marked by a very
simple ceremony in which a sister ties a rakhi - which may be a
colorful thread, a simple bracelet, or a decorative string - around the
wrist of her brother. The word "raksha" signifies protection, and
"bandhan" is an association signifying an enduring sort of bond; and
so, when a sister ties a rakhi around the waist of her brother, she
signifies her loving attachment to him. He, likewise, recognizes the
special bonds between them, and by extending his wrist forward, he in
fact extends the hand of his protection over her. Legend goes that Rani
Karnavati of Chittor sent a rakhi to the Mughal Emperor Humayun when
she was threatened by Bahadur Shah of Mewar. Humayun abandoned an
ongoing military campaign to ride to her rescue.
Independence Day -
Independence Day, August 15, commemorates the day in 1947 when India
achieved freedom from British rule. It is celebrated with flag hoisting
ceremonies and cultural programs in the state capitals. The Prime
Minister's speech at the Red Fort in Delhi is the major highlight. All
