Greetings to all on today’s festival of Rakshabandhan. I hope and pray that celebrations have been happily enjoyed in the household of all readers and friends.

As we have discussed in many posts earlier on this topic, Rakshabandhan is celebrated on the full moon day of the month of Saawan. In traditional terms, the timing of today’s celebrations got restricted due to two additional astrological events that coincided with the full moon celebration. As per the calculations of the ephemeris applicable to the Indian subcontinent, the full moon ‘tithi’ i.e. the ‘poornima’ started at 10:29 pm yesterday (6th Aug), and will be in effect till 11:41 pm tonight (7th Aug).

Today (7 august 2017) is the festival of Raakhi aka rakshabandhan. This festival is being celebrated from time immemorial, may be for more than two thousand years or so. Some interesting tales regarding this festival are mentioned in various sources. It would see that amulets were tied by women on men (not necessarily their brothers) for mens’ protection in ancient times. It was later that this practice took the present day form of sisters tying it on brothers’ wrist.

Hearty greetings to all friends and readers on the celebration of the Raksha Bandhan festival today.

Ok, ok, I know the query springing in your mind. No, I have not fallen off the edge of the earth. Very much here, reassuringly. Just that the cycles of fate brought in significant distractions and preoccupation for both Atul ji and myself, at the same time. The postings are just a trickle these days. But things on the personal and work fronts are keeping both of us away. Atul ji has been maintaining the trickle, whereas I have not been able to get anything on to the blog for days on end now. Long stories are often uninteresting, so I will cut it short, and say that days of drought are coming to a close. How soon, you may want to know. Pretty soon, I assure you. 😉 Hopeful to see more activity moving forward, and then we should be back to our regular output shortly.

Raksha bandhan comes in the festive month of Shravan. This year it is on 29th August 2015. Wishing all a very Happy Raksha Bandhan.

This is the eighth time we are celebrating it on our blog. Does that mean we have run out of Raksha Bandhan songs to be posted? Actually if we take a look at the list on the right side of our blog –the list which breaks up the blog category wise— we find 21 Rakhi songs have been posted beginning with the all-time universal favourite “Bhaiyya Mere Rakhi Ke Bandhan Ko Nibhana” from the 1959 “Chhoti Behan”. The last song in this category was in 2013 by Sudhirji “pardesi ho humse rakhiya bandha” from a 1944 movie.

Most Rakhi songs in this blog are from the golden era of HFM, viz from 1950s to 1970s, though Rakhi songs from 1930s, 40s and 80s have also been discussed in the past.

Here is a Rakhi song from the 1990s. This picturisation is intesteting. It shows a Mithun da covered from head to toes in Rakhis arrive at his residence where his three sisters are waiting for him. The sisters cannot even identify him, before the small kid accompanying Mithun da explains that Mithun Da had saved several girls from the clutches of baddies and the grateful girls had tied him with rakhis all over his body, including face. 🙂

Today is 10 august 2014 and the festival of Raakhi falls today. Seeing that this day is not declared as a holiday in most offices, it helps if this festival falls on the weekend, like how it is this time, when it has fallen on a sunday.

Time passes incessantly. And this relentless movement tends to become monotonous, if it were not for celebrations and festivals that punctuate the continuity of this passage. Time of the year again, for specific festivals and celebrations. A new enthusiasm and a new zest – to be doing new things differently.
