Rakshabandhan is a festival which celebrates the precious bond between brothers and sisters. This year, Rakhi is celebrated on August 15, 2019.It is marked by sisters tying the sacred thread, called Rakhi on their brother’s wrist. The brother, in return pledges to look after his sister and protect her all his life. It’s advised that the ceremony of Rakhi should be performed during the auspicious time of the day. Aparahan time is considered to be the best time to tie Rakhi on Rakshabandhan. It is the late afternoon time according to the Hindu division of the day. If Aparahan time is not available, then Pradosh time is also regarded as an auspicious time to perform the rakhi rituals.
