Raksha Bandhan Celebration

This year, Rakhsha Bhandan was celebrated in school.

Raksha Bandhan is an important day for every Indian woman. Rakhi or Raksha is a sacred thread embellished with sister's love and affection for her brother. On the day of Raksha Bandhan sisters tie Rakhi on their brother's wrist and express their love for him. By accepting a Rakhi from a sister a brother gladly takes on the responsibility of protecting her sister. In Indian tradition the frail thread of Rakhi is considered stronger than iron chains as it binds brothers and sisters in an inseparable bond of love and trust.

At Swami Brahmanand, the children make rakhis at their vocational centre which are later sold in the school. The children feel pleased to earn a small amount for their work.
