Amidst a jarring political atmosphere in our country, with increasing intensity as each day breaks - post Uri attack followed by the surgical strikes by the Indian Army - Nobody have noticed that a new trend "Like them or not, love them or not, but you can't simply ignore them" is catching up the imagination of people in their subconscious mind.
Let me start with few lines by eminent poet Swabhabakabi Gangadhar Meher that was taught in my elementary school- "Matrubhoomi matrubhasha ra mamata jaa hrude janaminahin, taku jadi gyani ganare ganiba agyani rahibe kahi"
Indian culture is mostly a relationships-driven way-of-life and almost all Indian festivals reflect the same. "Kinship is the spirit of any festivity" holds true for any Indian festival. Raksha Bandhan is one such festival for the celebration of bond of love between brothers and sisters. It is a day when siblings pray for each others' well being and wish for each others' happiness and goodwill.
