Raksha Bandhan :The Unbreakable Bond between Brother and Sister.

I remember as a kid even My sisters used to tie me a Rakhi, its a festival of Hindus but everyone in the Country celebrates. 😊

In India, festivals are the celebration of togetherness, of being one of the family. Raksha Bandhan is one such festival that is all about affection, fraternity and sublime sentiments. It is also known as Raksha Bandhan which means a ‘bond of protection’. This is an occasion to flourish love, care, affection and sacred feeling of brotherhood.
On the day of Rakhi, sisters prepares the pooja thali with diya, roli, chawal, rakhi thread and sweets. The ritual begins with a prayer in front of God, then the sister ties Rakhi to her brother and wishes for his happiness and well-being. In turn, the brother acknowledge the love with a promise to stand by his sister through all the good and bad times.

Sisters tie Rakhi on the wrist of their brothers amid chanting of mantras, put roli and rice on his forehead and pray for his well-being. She bestows him with gifts and blessings. In turn, brothers also wish her a good life and pledges to take care of her. He gives her a return gift. The gift symbolizes the physical acceptance of her love, reminder of their togetherness and his pledge. The legends and the reference in history repeated, the significance of the festival is emphasized.

Raksha bandhan has been celebrated in the same way with the same traditions for many years. Only the means have changed with the changing lifestyle to make the celebration more elaborate and lively. This day has an inherent power that pulls the siblings together. The increasing distances evoke the desire to be together even more. All brothers and sisters try to reach out to each other on this auspicious day. The joyous meeting, the rare family get-together, that erstwhile feeling of brotherhood and sisterhood calls for a massive celebration.

For everyone, it is an opportunity to reunion and celebrate. People also share tasty dishes, wonderful sweets and exchange gifts. It is a time to share their past experiences also. For those who are not able to meet each other, rakhi cards and e-rakhis and rakhis through mails perform the part of communicating the rakhi messages. Hand made rakhis and self-made rakhi cards are just representation of the personal feelings of the siblings.

Parents Day !

National Parents’ Day honors all parents on the fourth Sunday in July

In May we celebrated mothers, and in June we celebrated fathers.  It follows that in July we can bring all our parents together and show them some appreciation all at once.  Parents play a vital role in the lives of children.  From the day we are born, parents are our protectors, teachers, providers and role models.  As families, they are the core of our communities.  On National Parents’ Day, we honor all parents do every day to raise up their children in a world that is constantly changing and challenging.

               

HOW TO OBSERVE:
Spend some time with your parents or visit someone who was like a parent to you.  Post on social media using #NationalParentsDay and encourage others to join in.

HISTORY:

National Parents’ Day was established in 1994 when President Bill Clinton signed a Congressional Resolution into Law  (36 U.S.C. Β§ 135) for: recognizing, uplifting, and supporting the role of parents in the rearing of children.”  The bill was introduced by Republican Senator Trent Lott. 

HAPPY PARENTS DAY TO ALL !

Women Power : WWC Finals

​Harmanpreet Kaur‘s scintillating 115-ball unbeaten 171 against Australia in the semi-final of the 2017 Women’s World Cup was one of those innings that will go down in history as one of the best ever.

The Indian all-rounder made otherwise ‘world-class’ Aussie bowlers look helpless as she continued to humiliate them by knocking boundary after boundary. The 36-run victory on Thursday helped India book a spot in the finals, where they will face hosts England.

After Indian skipper Mithali Raj elected to bat first on winning the toss in a rain-shortened 42-overs-a-side semi-final at the County Ground, Kaur hammered her third One-day International ton, filled with 20 fours and seven massive sixes, to set a daunting 282-run target for the opponents to chase.

Australian Women tried their best in their batting with Blackwell scoring 90 and Villaini  75 but was all out on 245 runs at 41.1 overs.
India will face the mighty England on Sunday at London, and we are prepared for it. I wish our Womens team Luck and give their best in finals and make India Proud πŸ’œ

You will find a Palace, Shilpagram and many other places to visit. Few Kilometres from this town theres Amboli Water Falls which has became a tourist attraction during Monsoon. 

Parents take their kids to ‘Shiv Udyan’ Garden which has many slides Swings for childrens to play.
