Rakhi is more of a 'Rakshasutra', it can be tied to anyone

Rakhi festival is celebrated in the month of Sawan. The festival of Rakhi is going to be celebrated on 3 August this time. There are many people who do not have a sister. Now today we are going to tell to whom they can get the rakhi tied. If you do not have a sister, then you can get rakhi tied with cousins. But if it is not there, then you can get a rakhi tied to the priest, wife, guru and father for the auspicious blessing on the full moon day of Sawan.

Since ancient times, priests in the society have been tying up Kalavas to everyone. It is said that in the olden days, on the day of Sawan Purnima, the priests used to tie a Raksasutra to the kings. However, there was a purpose behind this, which was that they would protect all sections of society. Even today, if anyone worships at home, the pundits tie the Kalava of all the members present in the house. Apart from this, the festival of Rakhi is celebrated nowadays. Due to this, if you do not have a sister, then you can get a rakhi tied by your wife. 

Devraj Indra was tied Rakshasutra by her wife Shachi. There is also a story about this which we are going to tell you today. A demon named Vritrasura wanted to take control of heaven on the strength of his courage. He could not be defeated by anyone, so Devraj Indra lost to him many times. Then Devaraj got a thunderbolt made from the bones of Maharishi Dadhichi's body and vowed that this time he will get Virgati or will be victorious. Hearing this, Devraj's wife Shachi became distraught and made a Raksha sutra and tied it on Indra's wrist. On the day she tied Rakshasutra, it was Sawan Purnima. He then went to war got the victory. After this Goddess Lakshmi tied this Rakshasutra to King Bali.
