Going to send Rakhi to Australia? -

Rakhi is the traditional Hindu festival, it is also known as Raksha Bandhan. It came into existence about 6000 years back when first civilization was created by Aryans. The festival of Rakhi is celebrated in many different ways across India. There are many historical incidences of Raksha Bandhan celebration some of they are:

The story of Emperor Humayun and Rani Karnavati is the most famous incidence in the history. During the medieval period, Rajputs were fighting Muslims attack. When Rani Karnavati , the widow of the king of Chittor realized that there is no way to protect their kingdom from the attack of the Sultan of Gujarat, Bahadur Shah, she sent a Rakhi to Emperor Humayun. The Emperor Humayun feels the sign of sister love and without wasting any time he started off with his troop.

The other incidence of Raksha Bandhan Celebration is: – It is said that the great emperor Alexander of Macedonia was stunned by the anger of the Indian king Puru in his first attempt. By this he was upset, his wife heard about the Rakhi festival and sent it to King puru. He accepted her as his sister and during the war, he died to protect Alexander.

Rakhi is a holy thread which is a symbol of sister’s love and affection for her brother. On the day of Rakhi sisters tie rakhi on the wrists of their brothers and express their love for them.  This festival is celebrated in the same manner and tradition as celebrated from the ancient period of time. But the lifestyle of people is changing from time to time. Today this festival is being celebrated in many different ways. As all are busy in their life and live far from the family so it is very difficult to celebrate this occasion and send Rakhi to Australia. Thus, people find the different ways to send Rakhi to Australia, messages and gifts either by the means of postal or by the means of online mode.

When there was a lack of technology, sisters used to send their Rakhi by post to their brothers and by the same way brothers sent gifts and amount of money for their sisters.

But today when people can use technology in every task then they can do the same in Rakhi festival also. If your brother lives in Australia and he is not able to come and celebrate the Rakhi festival with you then you can send Rakhi to Australia and message through online mode by the help of different sites with lots of blessings and celebrate this festival with the same love and affections. In the same way brothers can also send the gifts to their lovely sisters with lots of love and promises. So technology helps sisters and brothers to come close and reduce the long distance.
