Jamshedpur, Aug 3: The former Chief Minister Raghubar Das joined the rakhi celebrations with his three siblings and other cousins at his Agrico residence on Monday. The sisters followed tradition and tied rakhi to their former Chief Minister brother.
“I am happy to be here with my sisters. Today is the day of sisters.I wish all the sisters of Jharkhand a happy Raksha Bandhan and we are proud of all our sisters in Jharkhand,” Das said after the ceremony of Raksha Bandhan at home.
The spirit of Raksha Bandhan radiated across the city. Youngsters flocked to the markets to get a fashionable gift for their sisters from a range of imported chocolates, kurtis, perfumes, watches, and even laptops.
Rakhis were also exchanged as bonds of friendship, a practice that has become an increasingly popular trend, particularly among the school students and college crowd. People celebrated Rakhi Poornima by performing pujas in the temples and changed their holy threads.
