Happy Raksha Bandhan 2020: India is celebrating the special occasion of Raksha Bandhan also known as Rakhi. Rakhi celebrates the eternal bond between siblings. A sister ties a sacred thread or knot around her brother’s wrist while the brother promises to look after her and protect her.
Raksha Badhan is a time for family and friends to come together and enjoy the time. This year, Raksha Bandhan is being celebrated on August 3. Amid coronavirus pandemic, the celebrations are at low-key.
Meanwhile, Prime Minister took to Twitter and wrote: “Many wishes to all the countrymen on the holy festival of Raksha Bandhan.”
लता दीदी, रक्षा बंधन के इस शुभ अवसर पर आपका यह भावपूर्ण संदेश असीम प्रेरणा और ऊर्जा देने वाला है। करोड़ों माताओं-बहनों के आशीर्वाद से हमारा देश नित नई ऊंचाइयों को छुएगा, नई-नई सफलताएं प्राप्त करेगा। आप स्वस्थ रहें और दीर्घायु हों, ईश्वर से मेरी यही प्रार्थना है। @mangeshkarlata https://t.co/pDHg0y3fDT
