The celebrations revolving around Rakhi Purnima begins several days in advance with sisters getting busy choosing an apt Rakhi for their brothers. On the day of this grand festival, brothers and sisters meet for the ceremonies which are to be carried out on a predetermined time. The sister at first performs an aarti of her brother with a lighted diya which signifies the God of fire. Then she ties the holy Rakhi thread on her brother’s wrist with a lot of devotion and well wishes.
