I feel that festival of raksha Bandhan(Rakhi) is a symbol of sick Indian society.
Today Indians feel that it is a festival which shows the love, the bondage of brother and sister. But when we look into the mythological and historical factors related to this festival, when we look into the deeper meanings of this festival, it becomes clear that this festival is a generation of a sick society where women were not safe (are not safe).
THEY WERE/ARE A SOFT TARGET.
THEY COULD/CAN BE VERY EASILY VICTIMIZED.
They needed to be protected. Hence on the day of Rakha Bandhan they tie their brother into a vow that they will always protect them, save them. Symbolically they tie a thread or a Rakhi on the wrist of their brothers to tie them into this vow.
I simply don't like this festival because this is just a patch work. First we gave birth to a society where our female members are always unsafe, then we give birth to a festival like Rakhi, through which we promise to protect them. I want that we should change the structure of our society into such a way that there should be no extra need of protecting our females.
THEY SHOULD BE ALWAYS SAFE, EVERYWHERE SAFE BY DEFAULT.
And there should be no need of a festival like Raksha Bandhan. If brothers and sisters decide a day to celebrate their relation, their love-- I do not have any objection. But looking into the deeper meanings of Raksha Bandhan ,I have strong objections if this festival is celebrated.
