On Raksha bandhan, sisters tie rakhi on the wrist of their brother and pray for his long life. In return for tying rakhi to sister, brother always promises to protect. There is confusion among people regarding the date of Raksha Bandhan this year.
Some pundits are telling the festival of Rakhi on August 11, while some are telling that it is very good to tie Rakhi on August 12. This year, the shadow of Bhadra will also remain on the festival of Rakhi. In such a situation, if you are celebrating Raksha Bandhan on August 11, then know these special things-
