It is said that the festival of Rakhi has been going on from pre-historic time in India and dates back to the Vedic age even. However, if the modern age is taken into consideration, none other than Rabindranath Tagore deserves the credit to popularize the custom more than ever before. Those were the turbulent days of anti-partition movement (Bangabhanga Birodhi or Swadeshi Andolan) during 1905 when the globally revered poet vowed to promote the notion of national unity, commitment to people at large in India through Rakhi and thus to strengthen the country enough to fight back British imperialism.
Hindu Samhati, since its inception, to promote the same saga of national unity, harmony among people in India and also to strengthen the Hindu consciousness (Chetana), has been celebrating Rakhi festival with splendor. There has not been any exception in this year as well; the best display of which was witnessed on August 2, 2012 or the very day of Rakhi or Raksha Bandhan.
Hindu Samhati activists, in large numbers, did partake in the cause and extended hands of assistance and harmony to all sections of the society through tying Rakhi. Activists in large numbers visited different echelons of the government in various parts of Bengal. And as expected, personnel of Police Force, BDO Office, BLR (Land Revenue) Office, Panchayat Office, SDO, SDPO, GRP (Rail Police) Office and BSF greeted them cordially.
Hindu Samhati is a highly committed nationalist organization and its sincerity to celebrate Rakhi Utsav denotes the same once again altogether.
