Brahmakumaris and students tie rakhis on Governor

GANGTOK, 10 Aug: On the occasion of Raksha-Bandhan, a group of five Brahmakumaris  from Brahma Kumaris Rajyoga Meditation Centre, Gangtok, led by In-charge (Sikkim) Brahma Kumari Shefali tied Rakhi on Governor Shriniwas Patil at Raj Bhavan today.
A press release from the Raj Bhawan informs that the Governor enquired about the activities of the Brahma Kumaris in Sikkim and assured all possible help to their noble cause.
Earlier in the day, a group of four students from Saraswati Vidhya Niketan, Tadong also tied Rakhi on the Governor of Sikkim and the First Lady Rajanidevi Patil. The students also chanted  the 13th Chapter of Bhagwad Gita on the occasion.
The Governor has also conveyed his greetings of Rakshabandhan to the people of Sikkim.
In his message the Governor has said, “Rakshabandhan festival celebrates the love and trust between brothers and sisters. In fact, the festival bears great social cultural and historical significance to the Indians and the people of Indian origin spread across the world. The festival has become all the more contextual and relevant today in view of the degrading values in our society and the increasing instances of crimes against our mothers and sisters.
The festival gives us the occasion to renew our pledge and responsibility to provide social security to our mothers and sisters. May this festival strengthen the eternal bonds of love and affection in family and society.”
