AGARTALA, Aug 14 (TIWN): Raksha Bandhan celebration has been started in Tripura. In Chief Minister Biplab Deb’s quarter regardless Hindus and Muslims this programme was celebrated and all religions’ women tied “rakhi” on CM’s wrist.

This year Rakhi Bandhan Utsav falls on August 15, the day of Independence Day. Shops have already been decorated with various designed Rakhis.

A very thoughtful concept handed down from generation to generation in Indian society. Men in society need to be more proactive and courageous to save the girls, treat them well,
fight for their honour so as to build a good society. This is what the festival ‘Rakshabandhan’ teaches all of us.

When Northeast Assam is suffering from Hindu, Muslim tensions it’s important to know how Rabindranath Tagore used Raksha Bandhan as means to prevent 1905 Bengal partition

Following Tagore's call, hundreds of Hindus and Muslims in Kolkata, Dhaka and Sylhet came out in large numbers to tie Rakhi threads as a symbol of unity. Tagore's heartland Santiniketan still follows the tradition and the university students tied Rakhi to neighbours and common people to give a message of harmony.
