Raksha Bandhan 2020

In early September I had the great honour of representing the Community Council at the Raksha Bandhan festival in the new Hindu Temple on Bankhead Avenue. The word Raksha means protection, whilst Bandhan
is the verb to tie. Traditionally, during this festival, sisters tie a rakhi, a bracelet made of interwoven red and gold threads, round their brothers’ wrists to celebrate their relationship. Today the festival has developed and representatives from the three armed services were present. Although, due to social distancing, it wasn’t possible to physically tie the rakhis, this was an opportunity to say a big thank you for the protection that the Army, Navy and Airforce offer our society as the rakhis and other gifts were handed over.

I really appreciated the opportunity to see inside the temple, which is lovely, and to see how it is developing into a very impressive space. I am delighted that when restrictions allow, the members of Hindu Temple are keen for the building to be used by all the community.
