INDIA-RELIGION-HINDUISM

An Indian Muslim shopkeeper hangs 'rakhis' (sacred thread) for display at a market ahead of the Hindu festival of Raksha Bandhan in Mumbai on August 19, 2013. The annual Hindu festival of Raksha Bandhan, which commemorates the abiding ties between siblings of opposite sex, is marked by a very simple ceremony in which a woman ties a rakhi, which may be a colorful thread, a simple bracelet, or a decorative string, around the wrist of her brother. This year's Raksha Bandhan will be celebrated across India on August 20. AFP PHOTO/Indranil MUKHERJEE (Photo credit should read INDRANIL MUKHERJEE/AFP/Getty Images)
