Happy Rakhi Poornima to all.Today is the Sravana Poornima. All the Sisters will tie Rakhi to their brothers asking for their blessings. All brothers will be offering gifts and sweets to their Sister. In my early days, this festival was not very popular in South India. But now it is a very common festival and people of all ages will be celebrating this festival with much happiness and enthusiasm.
Another important event today is the changing of Yagjyopaveetham ( Sacred Thread). It is a practice that all will replace their old Sacred thread with a new one. It is a custom in both the Telugu States.
I wish all the members of ISC a happy Rakhi Poornima.
