Rakhi is a thread which is bound on the wrist of the brothers by their sisters on the eve of Rakshabandhan. Rakshabandhan is the day which promotes the love and affection of brothers and sisters.
On this day brothers promise to their sister that they will always take care and protect them from every problem of life. The relation of brothers and sisters is a strongest relation in the world and considered as the most reliable relation. That is why rakhi is considered as the strongest thread.

In the earlier days, many people believed that rakshabandhan was the festival of all, means anyone can tie rakhi to anyone. Any gender to any gender. The main purpose of this thread is to take promise from others to take care and be with others always, and always help them.
