Rakshabandhan is a great festival of India depicting the love and affection among brothers and sisters.. the festival is celebrated with sister tying a sacred thread (Raksha or Rakhi) offers sweets after applying a Teeka with Roli and Chawal on the forehead of her brother with some sweets.. Wishing the lonegevity and good health of her brother..
Brother in turn offers money (or gifts) to the sister and takes a vow to protect her from all adversities.. Some of the songs here have been quite a favourite for me.. This time the post was first posted at drupal site by updating an old book page called Rakshabandhan and Bhai Dooj songs..
The songs are gift to all brothers and sisters who may be celebrating the festival.. I have tried to present as many songs close to the festive spirits of Rakshabandhan.. ‘Ab Ke Baras Bhej Bhaiya Ko Babul’ is here though not at top yet featured high enough.. I am sure Jasmine Di would love it..
On this Rakshabandhan I have addressed a group of representative sisters (Kendriya Vidyalays I have attended) and from the official blog of Amitabh Bachchan..Drupal Site for individual song listings and a small dedication post there..
