Contact: Office of Diversity and Inclusion, diversity@unl.edu
A Hindu holiday commemorating the loving kinship between a brother and a sister. Raksha means protection in Hindi and symbolizes the longing a sister has to be protected by her brother. During the celebration, a sister ties a string around her brother’s (or brother-figure’s) wrist and asks him to protect her. The brother usually gives the sister a gift and agrees to protect her for life.
