Rakhi story similar

Is this story quite similar the attitude that Guru Nanak had in view of Rakhia (the ceremony of sisters tying string around their brothers wrist for his long life) in which Guru Nanak was against. Many Sikhs still practice Rakhia but I have not seen or heard that practice Janoy. It is interesting how some Hindu traditions have stayed within the population and others have disappeared.
