" celebration of Raksha Bandhan"
“Rakhi is the thread that binds two souls in a bond of joy forever.
And today I’m remembering with joy, the special tie we share and wishing you happiness and good luck forever.”
Raksha Bandhan is observed on the last day of the Hindu lunar calendar month of Shraavana, which typically falls in August. The expression "Raksha Bandhan," Sanskrit, literally, "the bond of protection, obligation, or care," is now principally applied to this ritual.
Raksha Bandhan is a popular, traditionally Hindu, annual rite, or ceremony, which is central to a festival of the same name, celebrated in South Asia, and among people around the world influenced by Hindu culture. Raksha Bandhan is an Indian celebration of sisterly and brotherly respect and love. 'Raksha' means protection and 'Bandhan', to tie. A sister will wrap a red-and-gold Rakhi (sacred thread of love) round her brother's wrist and say a prayer for his wellbeing, as she makes a mark on his forehead with red powder.
Our little toddler has learned how to make Rakhi from natural things like leaves, thread and many more waste material. Learners in Gajera International School celebrated Raksha Bandhan in a unique way by tying rakhi on trees with messages like ‘Save Environment’ and ‘Save Trees, Save Life’. This was done by the learners in an attempt to raise awareness about the environment.
