Rakshabandhan is just around the corner, and the preparations are in full swing. Girls are excited about tying beautiful rakhis to their brothers. India is a land of various cultures and traditions, and one such tradition is tying rakhi to sister-in-law as well. However, the rakhi for sister-in-law is known as ‘Lumba Rakhi’.
About Lumba Rakhi
Rakhi is a festival celebrated for signifying the love between brother and sister, and the bond of love is symbolized by tying the rakhi. The brother gives gifts to his sister and vows to protect her. Similarly, a Lumba rakhi is tied on the bangle of brother’s wife. In Marwari language, Lumba means bangle, and hence, the rakhi tied on bangle is known as Lumba rakhi. Though the custom had its origin in the Marwari community, it has been trending in other communities as well.
Significance of Lumba Rakhi
There is a joint family culture in India, and the Lumba Rakhi tradition fosters relationships within a family. When you tie rakhi to your brother’s wife, you not only strengthen your bond with your brother but also with your sister-in-law. Also, the wife is considered as ‘Ardhangini’ of man’s body. Thus, no ritual can be completed without his wife.
When you tie Lumba Rakhi to your sister-in-law, you wish her a happy and secure married life for her. Rakhi is a symbol of prayer and good wishes to strengthen her marital relationship and bliss to the couple. With our sister-in-law’s presence in the household, we seek protection for our whole family with Lumba Rakhi. It brings happiness as it binds the family together.
