Chief Minister Pema Khandu celebrated Raksha Bandan with the children from VKV Chimpu and members of Prajapati Brahma Kumaris Ishwariya Vishawa Vidhyalaya at his Secretariat office today.
Khandu while interacting with the children and members shared that Rakhi festival encompasses the warmth shared between the siblings but now it goes way beyond it. People tie Rakhi to neighbours and close friends signifying a peaceful co-existence of every individual. He appealed all to understand and follow the true message of Raksha Bandhan.
“In today’s scenario, the day has a different perspective. The occasion involves a pledge of life-time practice of moral, cultural and spiritual values. The values and the sentiments attached to the rituals of this festival are worth inculcating by the whole human race, the sentiments of harmony and peaceful coexistence,” he further shared. He hoped that Raksha Bandhan celebration would promote the feeling of unity and a commitment to all members of society to protect each other and encourage a harmonious social life.
