Raksha Bandhan as the name suggests is the ‘bond of protection’ by tying a holy thread around the wrist of the brother, who takes responsibility to protect the sister and look after her well-being. This festival was celebrated in Orchids- The International School with lots of joy and zeal. The students came dressed up in colorful traditional dresses. The girls tied bright and colorful rakhis on the hands of boys depicting the bond of trust. The girls then put red tika on the boy’s forehead. Children are given chocolates.
