Who is a Rakhi brother?

A Rakhi brother is the one who is not related by the ties of blood, but by feelings and sentiments. Women who don’t have real brothers or share a similar bond with men can celebrate the festival of Rakhi with them. As the sacred thread of Rakhi is not limited to the real blood relations but beyond it as well, you can tie a Rakhi on the wrist of your ‘muh-bola’ brother and celebrate the festival. The religious ceremonies of Rakhi with rakhi brother are the same as performed with a real or cousin brother.
