Raksha Bandhan is one of the most popular festivals in India which signifies the bond between brother and sister. This year, the festival of love and affection is celebrated across the country on Sunday (August 26).
During this festival, a sister ties a rakhi on her brother’s hand and pray for his healthy and wealthy life. In return, the brother also wishes for his sister’s good life, and gifts them goodies like dresses, chocolates, and other gift items.
Indian cricketers also celebrated the auspicious occasion with their sisters and posted special messages for them on micro-blogging site Twitter.
Here are some of the tweets:

सावन की सुगंध औ बारिश की फुहार,
भाई की उम्मीद और बहन का प्यार,
मुबारक हो रक्षाबंधन का त्यौहार।। pic.twitter.com/3JSRMKilus
