Raksha Bandhan (Rakhi) a Public Holiday:
Raksha Bandhan is an optional holiday. The employment and vacation laws in India allow employees to choose a limited number of vacations from an optional vacation list. Some employees may choose to take the day off that day, however, most offices and businesses remain open.
History Of Raksha Bandhan (Rakhi):
Rakhi has many stories around him. During the Mahabharata, it is believed that Draupadi tied a rakhi on Krishna’s wrist when he had injured a finger while using his Sudarshan chakra against King Shishupalal. While Krishna’s hand was bleeding, Draupadi tore off a piece of his sari and tied it around his hand. In return, Krishna swore that he would always be there to protect Draupadi.
Raksha Bandhan (Rakhi) is observed on the last day of the month of the Hindu lunar calendar of Shravan.
Nobel Prize winner Rabindranath Tagore began a massive festival of Raksha Bandhan (Rakhi) during the Bengal Partition (1905), in which he encouraged Hindu and Muslim women to link a rakhi to men from the other community and turn them into their brothers. The exercise was designed to counteract British efforts to create a division between Hindus and Muslims.
