Chinese Rakhis are a hit this Raksha Bandhan
Chinese-made goods have flooded every Indian market, especially in the technology sector. But shocking is the fact that even Chinese-made rakhis are a hit among Indian masses.
TOMORROW IS the full moon of Shravan and one of the most important days for many brothers and sisters who love and celebrate Raksha Bandhan
with a lot enthusiasm. As was reported by ANI Raksha Bandhan for many has taken a new turn. As we must know that we get an easy and cheap alternative of almost every thing from China and these things are normally Chinese made- phones, iPods, mp3s, tumblers, pens and the list is endless. However, people would be surprised to know that even the sacred threads are taken over by the Chinese market, as more and more Indians are liking and buying Chinese-made rakhis these days.
A shopper said, “I have bought rakhis for the special occasion and my brother likes the rakhis that have lights in it, which is also known as Chinese rakhis and I have bought them. Apart from them all the other rakhis are also very pretty.” A shop keeper in Gorakhpur also pointed out the fact that Chinese rakhis are really big among the people these days. He said, “From the past 3-4 years these Chinese rakhis are growing and people are really liking them.”
Chinese rakhis might be the flavor of the season but other rakhis made of gold, silver, pearl and other stones are no less in demand. Many people still go for the traditional rakhis and for them also the options are many.
In Nagpur at a military school, students have made 15,000 rakhis to send it to all the Indian soldiers at the various international borders. The thought behind the process, says colonel Sunil Deshpande, “We want the soldiers to know that they are thought of and missed and that we do not remember them only when the country is facing some outside invasion.”
