Traditionally, on this day, sisters do not eat anything until they have tied Rakhi to their brothers. On the day of Rakshabandhan, sisters pray for their brothers and also make a holy pledge to protect them. The tradition of tying Raksha Sutras has been going on since ancient times and it has become more fun now.
