Raksha Bandhan is celebrated with great pomp and enthusiasm in India, mostly in the North and North-Western states. The story Raksha Bandhan has a mythological significance as well. One fine morning, when Lord Krishna was flying a kite, he cut his finger on the string of the kite. Draupadi, on seeing blood coming out of his finger, ran to him, tore a piece of cloth from her sari and tied it on his bleeding finger. Lord Krishna was so touched by this that he promised to protect her from all evil in return. And as is known, he did protect her when the Kauravas tried to humiliate her.
