Rakhshabandhan: vow to a safer society

The annual festival of Rakhshabandhan is meant to perpetuate the everlasting ties between brother and sister. The word “Rakhsha” signifies safety and Bandhan is an association announcing an abiding bond. In ancient times this bond of security was celebrated as a symbolic peace ambassador, where a queen used to send this anti-war thread to other kingdoms for ensuring the harmony, non-violence and security among the two Empires and it was carried out as a lifelong vow.

But, in today’s society only few girls have the pleasure to pursue their chase of dream beneath their brother’s safe wings. Others have to live separately from their family to spend a life they wish. In today’s scenario who will lock up their safety? Social Binding is the answer to this. Let’s make up our mind to save all ladies of our society. It might be a friend living separately from her family, a classmate in the hostel, a lady in the new city or a girl travelling daily in the bus. Let’s promise a calm shelter to them.

Let’s celebrate this Rakhi as an Event to cease the violence in society. Why only vow to protect one’s sister only, let’s pledge to protect the whole women population. This relation of protection is not limited to a brother-sister, but is an Event to Celebrate the Social Binding, which is very well executed in the new Idea advertisement. It can be among a Defense man and a citizen, a security guard and a little school girl, a bus driver and a daily traveler, and many more.

Let’s Honor them for helping us in the situation, let’s thank them for being our guide, let’s gratify them for the guarding, and let’s acknowledge them of their significance. Let us salute the bond of safety with everyone who immune our shelter from any mishap.

To save the sister with same blood in veins…
Is a ritual taught and in our mind it always remains…

Why not pledge to save all ladies…?
Why not vow safety to all…?
Why it needed to be a brother…
Let us be a guard to each other…
United we stand, divided we fall…
But a thread of peace can save us all…

Wish you all a Happy Rakshabandhan!
