Mumbai, 7 Aug 2017: Raksha Bandhan, also popularly known as Rakhi celebrated on the full moon day according to the Hindu Calendar, in India as well as Nepal.
Raksha Bandhan not only marks the celebration of the unique love and responsibility between brothers and sisters or the affirmation of family ties, but also signifies relationship between men and women that have a similar feeling even when they aren’t biologically related.
