Bangla Govt observes ‘Sanskriti Dibas’ on the occasion of Rakhi Bandhan

With the inspiration of Bangla Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, the State Government is celebrating Sanskriti Dibas today, on the occasion of Rakhi Bandhan, to spread the message of communal harmony.

The State Youth Services and Sports Department is hosting the programmes.

In 1905, Rabindranath Tagore had observed Rakhi Bandhan as a mark of unity between Hindus and Muslims when the British decided to divide Bengal.

Sanskriti Dibas is being observed in 342 Blocks, 122 municipalities, six Municipal Corporations and in all the 144 wards of the Kolkata Municipal Corporation, all district headquarters and GTA.

It may be mentioned here that Mamata Banerjee has time and again spread the message of unity and harmony at various public meetings. She has urged people to uphold the spirit of Bangla which stands for peace, progress and prosperity.
