 The love of sisters who tied Rakhi by planting small saplings on the occasion of Raksha Bandhan three years ago was overshadowed by Coronavirusin Sriganganagar near Abohar. Each year, the girls of Star Dolphins International School, who tied Rakhi to these plants, Akshara, Rashi, Pooja, Riya, Deepali and Anshika reached school today morning with Rakhis in their hands,applied vermillion on their brother-like trees and carried the tradition of tree bonding. The small saplings that these girls had planted three years ago have grown up well. The only and unique innovation of its kind is becoming an inspiration for all in this era of epidemic.

The founder president of the school, Vijay Jindal, says it was in 2018 that the girls expressed a desire to plant saplings outside the school premises on the day of Raksha Bandhan.

They took a pledge to celebrate the festival each year by tying a Rakhi to the plants. In the same sequence, this festival was being celebrated for the last two years, but this time there was apprehension of discontinuing it in view of the epidemic. Despite this, the girls put masks on their faces and, with sanitizers in their hands, reached school and tied a Rakhi to their brothers. During the time, the girls also took full care of social distancing and did not allow the tradition of the ‘Vrikshbandhan’ to discontinue.–
