“A sister is a gift to the heart, a friend to the spirit, a golden thread to the meaning of life.” - Isadora James
Rakhi is a sacred thread embellished with sister's love and affection for her brother and this frangible thread is considered even stronger than an iron chain as it strongly binds brothers and sisters in the circumference of mutual love and trust. To share the special bond between brother and sister, a special assembly on ‘Rakshabandhan’ was conducted by the students of grade 3 at Presidium Dwarka 16B. The Presidians presented a mythological skit in which they showcased the reason behind this festival by portraying the characters of Krishna and Draupadi. Students also played the role of brothers and sisters and enacted different traditions and rituals connected with this festival like preparing pooja thalis with diyas, roli, chawal and Rakhis. They tied beautiful Rakhis on the wrists of their classmates and wished for their wellbeing. Acknowledging each other's love with a promise that they will remain by their side and protect them from every fall and down throughout the life, the students also shared little gifts as tokens of love.
