Ready to find the perfect rakhi gift you're looking for? Let's begin!

The importance of giving rakhi gifts to sister in Hindu culture

Hindu culture is not often looked at fondly by us GenZs who think of many rituals and rites as being outdated. Lately, I've found myself looking into reasons why some aspects of this culture have always made sense and will continue to.

As for the festival of rakshabandhan and its simple associated rituals-

  1. Your sister ties or parcels a rakhi to you regardless of the fact that you get on each other's nerves so often than not (the ways might change, but the core idea of irritating remains the same as it always was)
  2. You give her a small gift be it something as small as a sticker, a chocolate or as huge as, well... (resisting VERY HARD to not insert the gift I have my *manifestations* set on)

Is there a present day relevance of gift-giving on rakhi?

In Hindu Culture, Rakhi Gifting is NOT a mere capitalist agenda.

Throughout their history right from the ancient times, Indians are known for their notions of simple living. Posh living standards were only a factor medieval times onwards, and that too just as an element of life of the nobility. Regular dwellers of our land have always found to be living in their simple kattcha huts with minimal utensils, cot for sleeping and two (if not more) pairs of clothing.

Even during and after independence, the call for simple living standards were strengthened by Mahatma Gandhi.

So what makes the festival of rakhi a popular gifting season despite "Roti, Kapda or Makaan" as being our basic mantra of priorities?

Gifting is one of the FIVE love languages!

It's a philosophy of making and keeping relations, backed by science.

Most Indian families might be more inclined to keep their emotions at bay and not having hearty conversations/ being very open about their deepest feelings, specially with bonds that have been shared over the years as a part of our core conditioning.

But luckily, even for us believers of simple-living.. there exist universal love languages as 5 types- gift giving being one of them!

Is it not great to have these tender feelings be a part of our long followed rituals?
