The festival is marked by the sister tying a sacred thread on the brotherâ€™s wrist. The brother in turn showers her with money and gifts and pledges to protect her all her life.
Though the festival is more popular in the northern regions, some Hindu religious women called Brahma Kumaris renewed brotherhood with the clergy in the southern state of Karnataka, where violence against Christians is rife.
Brahma Kumaris of Iswariya Vishwa Vidyalaya tied the sacred thread on the wrist of Bishop Aloysius Paul Dâ€™Souza of Mangalore, the port city of Karnataka.
â€śThis is a very fine gesture of brotherhood and sisterhood in the present context ofÂ communal confusion,â€ť said the prelate.
