History

According to Hindu mythology, Lord Krishna had accidentally cut his finger with the Sudarshan chakra. Draupadi had put a piece of cloth to end the bleeding. Her act touched Lord Krishna, and in return, he decided to protect her. When the Kauravas tried to humiliate her during the Chirharan event, Lord Krishna came and saved her from dishonour.

Significance

A sister applies tilak on the forehead of her brother for his health and well well-being then ties a rakhi around his wrist. The brother gives something in return to her.
