The love between a brother and a sister is one of the deepest and noblest of human emotions.
Raksha Bandhan, popularly referred to as Rakhi, is a special day for brothers and sisters. The festival commemorates the unique bond shared by the siblings and is celebrated with fun and fervour.
The Rakhi is a sacred thread embellished with a sister’s care, love and affection for her brother. What can be a better expression of love than hand-made rakhi crafted by a sister. Keeping this thought in mind the rakhi making competition was held on 21st August 2015 for the pre-primary wing of the Staford School.
The tiny tots came dressed in traditional attire. During the morning assembly students were apprised about the importance of Raksha Bandhan. Later the students participated in a rakhi making competition where they showed their creativity by decorating hand crafted rakhi with foil paper, match sticks, flowers, ribbons, glitter and sparkling stones. They came up with beautifully decorated rakhis and stunned everyone by exhibiting talent in rakhi making. They also tied rakhi on plants and trees as a pledge to protect them just the way they would care for their siblings.
The principal Ms Vijaya Kumar and the teachers experienced nostalgic moments when they saw the enthusiastic display put up by the tiny tots. All in all the celebration of the festival which glorifies the beautiful bond of trust and protection between a boy and a girl helped the students to nurture a healthy relationship.
