There are many mythical and historical occurences that mention the auspisious day of Rakhi. One is an incident from the epic Mahabharat concerns Krishna and Draupadi, the wife of the Pandavas. She had once torn a strip of silk off her sari and tied it around Lord Krishna's wrist to stop the bleeding from a battlefield wound. Lord Krishna was so touched by her action that he declared her to be his sister, even though they were unrelated. Krishna promised to repay the debt and then spent the next 25 years doing just that.
