HSS celebrates Raksha Bandhan to reaffirm support to community

Raksha Bandhan is a Hindu festival that has gained momentum of cross-cultural celebration. On this day, a sister ties a colorful thread, called ‘rakhi’ on her brother’s wrist and reminds him of his duty to protect her from any evil forces.

The Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh (HSS), USA’s Raksa Bandhan was performed by Maitri Hegde, HSS Chicago volunteer who tied the thread on Congressman Danny Davis and Rainbow Push Coalition’s Global Ambassador Dr VGP on Sept. 8 afternoon on the campus of University of Illinois Chicago.
