Rakshabandhan Greeting in Mithila Painting

On the occasion of Rakshabandhan, I have made this greetings wishing my brothers all love. The greeting has been decorated with the elements in the style and motifs of / Madhubani Painting

Rakshabandhan is a festival in India to celebrate the beautiful relation, love, affection and bond between a Brother and a Sister.  On this occasion Sister ties a thread ( which is called ) in the hands of her brother to pray for their well being who in turn commits to protect her against all odds.  

In this greeting, I have tried to encorporate the auspicious elements along with the famous Rakhi Thali in the centre. Rakhi Thali is a tray or plate where the auspicious Rakhi is kept along with Roli and Chandan for teeka (As an auspicious tradition Sister puts this on Brother’s forehead before tying the Rakhi on his hands. ) and sweets (here I have included Laddoos).

Here Rakhi has the blessings of Lord Ganesha (an important Hindu God) in centre with auspicious fish elements on both sides of thread as part of decoration.  Deep (auspicious earthen lamp in India) also marks its presence as the Sister worships her brother with Aarti before tying the Rakhi.  Symbol of Swastika is considered auspicious  in Hindu tradition. The border of the Thali is decorated with auspicious Shankh in motifs of Mithila Painting

I am not that good with lines so I have taken the message on the card from the internet and unfortunately not aware of the real poet of those lines. I would like to thank whosoever has written those lines.
