Raksha Bandhan is celebrated on the day of Purnima or full moon day in the month of Shravan or August. This festival idolizes the lovely bond between brothers and sisters. On this special day, sisters tie rakhi, on the wrist of brothers.This thread is a symbol of love and respect sisters have for their brothers. Reinforcing the purity and sanctity of the bond between siblings, the Pre-Primary Wing of DPS Durgapur celebrated Rakshabandhan. Dance, song and skit depicting the story behind the emergence of this festival was enacted by the little ones, along with display of hand-made rakhis. Finally, the toddlers tied ‘rakhi’ to the community helpers and acknowledged their services during these difficult times!. The vibrant, colourful attires and innocent smiles brightened the ambience and lifted the spirit.
