Raksha Bandhan stands for the celebration of siblinghood and is also known as “the knot of commitment”. The festival symbolizes the eternal love of brother-sister relationship. It is also celebrated among cousins, sisters-in-law and friends.
MITCON International School, conducted an online session on “Rakhi Making Activity” and “Eid Celebrations”. The students of Pre Primary and Primary on Thursday, 30 July 2020 made beautiful and decorative bio-degradable rakhis by pasting lentils like Chana dal,Tur dal, Coloured Rice, Fenugreek seeds, Dhaniya seeds etc on the different cutouts of colour chart paper and pasted it on the band, so once the the festivities are over, our mitconites will plant bio-degradable rakhis made by them, water them regularly and they will blossom into a new life.
The Significance of Eid and Rakhi festival was discussed by sharing a video and PPT. It was discussed that Eidi is a gift that is usually given to children by elder relatives and family friends as a part of celebration. It was mesmerizing as our students were in traditional outfits for the celebrations.
They were familiarized with the customs and rituals followed on “Raksha Bandhan” and “Eid”. The
school not only succeeded in catalyzing the feeling of love, care and affection but also taught students about our holistic tradition.
