Raksha Bandhan is the festival flavoured with the sweetness of brother and sister. And, the great way to celebrate the Rakhi festivities with happiness is to relish sweets and confections. From ages, sweets have been intrinsically associated with Indian festivals, traditions, and culture. But, why?
