Gujarat: Ahead of Independence Day and Raksha Bandhan, which are to be celebrated on August 15, 2019, as many as 670 students of a school in Surat formed a human chain by positioning themselves to form the ‘Tricolour National Flag’ and ‘Rakhi’.
Students came up with a unique way of celebrating the two occasions
The students of Shree Swaminarayan Gurukul have come up with a unique way to celebrate the two occasions which are being celebrated on the same day this year.
“Students here tried to convey a message of love and patriotism, ahead of Raksha Bandhan and Independence Day, by making a human chain and forming a Rakhi and National Flag. The main aim of this initiative is to convey a message to everyone that we should celebrate our Independence Day with a feeling of patriotism and with the same enthusiasm as we celebrate our Hindu festival, Raksha Bandhan,” said Suresh Swami, a faculty member of Gurukul.
The formation of national flag and rakhi was positioned in such a way that on having a look at it from above, nobody could make out that it was a human formation. The students prepared for this formation for a week and in a disciplined manner transformed themselves into a human flag and rakhi.
