Rakhi is not only a colorfully cotton thread tied on a brother's wrist but also a brother’s promise to protect his sister at all times.

Raksha Bandhan, (the bond of protection) or Rakhi is a festival primarily observed around the world by Hindus and today Fijians in Fiji commemorate this day.

The ceremony involves a sister tying a rakhi (cotton thread) to her brother’s wrist asking for protection and the brother confirming his love and affection for his sister by accepting the rakhi.

The tying of the rakhi is not restricted to blood relation but others also.

This symbolizes the sister's love and prayers for her brother's well-being, and the brother's lifelong vow to protect her.

The event captures merry making, sweets and the giving of gifts between brother’s and sisters to renew their vows.

“Raksha Bandhan is not only about tying the rakhi to our brother’s wrist, it’s also about showing them respect,” says 15-year-old Vindeshawari Devi.

Devi who resides in Nasinu said even though she has no brothers, this year she will be tying the rakhi to eleven of her close friends whom she considers her brothers.

“They are always there for me in times of need and I really appreciate them for that."

“It’s about caring, loving and consideration towards people,” she said.
