As a response, brothers take a pledge to protect their sisters. Generally, the opportune moment of Raksha Bandhan is celebrated on the Full moon day of the Shravan month. However, days might vary according to the moon’s waxing and waning. Is Raksha Bandhan only a festival among Hindus? Or, can sisters tie Rakhis on sisters’ hands? Let’s find out the significance, history, and progressed thoughts regarding Raksha Bandhan.

How did Raksha Bandhan Start?

Well, the root of Raksha Bandhan is situated in mythology. When Lord Krishna accidentally cut his finger with Sudarshan Chakra, Draupadi tore a piece from her cloth. And, she tied the piece of cloth around the cut to prevent the bleeding. This gesture touched Lord Krishna and he promised Draupadi to protect her from anything evil in the world.

When Kauravs tried dishonoring Draupadi, Lord Krishna came to her rescue. As a consequence of Lord Krishna’s blessing, the cloth or saree of Draupadi became endless. That’s how Raksha Bandhan came into the celebration pictures of Hindu. No doubt, it’s an enthusiastic celebration among siblings. Women tie threads or Rakhis to the idol of Lord Krishna, as well.

Raksha Bandhan is no more a Stereotypical Hindu Festival

The credit goes to the first-ever Nobel-winner among Indians, Rabindranath Tagore. It was 1905 in Indian history. When Lord Curzon, then Viceroy of India, planned the partition of Bengal to realize the divide-and-conquer policy among Hindus and Muslims, Rabindranath Tagore took a noticeable initiative. He urged Hindus and Muslims to tie Rakhis to each other to strengthen the solidarity and harmony among them.

How Tagore Used Rakhi to Resist Partition of Bengal & Strengthen Unity

A majority of Hindus and Muslims in Kolkata, Sylhet, and Dhaka followed Tagore’s request and tied Rakhis to each other. 

Additionally, it’s Signifying Sisterhood

Raksha Bandhan is not only meant for sisters tying Rakhis to brothers. It has become a new trend where sisters can tie Rakhis to sisters and it’s wiping out the gender-bias concepts. It’s not only your brothers who you can trust lifelong but your sisters are also capable of protecting you from evils in life. No doubt, sisters can share their darkest secrets with their sisters and avail of the greatest help when in need.

Sisters might fight over cosmetics, party-wear, TV remotes, and so on, but they will remain besties for life. To show gratitude and respect to sisters, women are also considering tying rakhis to their sisters. Especially, when you don’t have a brother, it doesn’t mean sisters can’t celebrate sisterhood or their childhood memories through Raksha Bandhan.

Now, sisters too tie each other a rakhi - Times of India

Avoiding gender bias, numerous Bollywood celebrities have come forward and they are tying Rakhis to each other as sisters. Speaking of Kriti Sanon and Nupur Sanon, Taapasee Pannu and Shagun Pannu, Malaika and Amrita Arora, they are all celebrating sisterhood through Raksha Bandhan.

Sisters are the perfect match for backing up sisters with physical and emotional support. Let’s make this Raksha Bandhan special for brothers, sisters, and all the relationships that are tied with familial bonds.

Participate in the celebration with all the safety measures against COVID. Stay alert, stay safe! Wish you all a very happy Raksha Bandhan.

On the 75th Year of Independence| Where do We Stand as a Country?

India celebrated its 75th Independence day on 15 August 2021. The journey to break down the walls of 200-year-old British rule wasn’t easy at all and with all the sacrifices ever made to our freedom, India’s independence does deserve a respectful celebration. But, this year’s celebration and realization of freedom are a bit different.

Image courtesy: Google

India solemnizes ‘Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav’ to make the 75th Independence day memorable. Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, hoisted the national flag and inspired the nation from the Red Fort in New Delhi. The Prime Minister addressed, “We have to celebrate this festival of 75 years of Independence by taking 130 crore countrymen together. Public participation is the core spirit of this event. The country can’t progress by denying anyone’s contribution. The country goes forward by accepting and respecting everyone’s contributions and we want to follow this mantra.”

Additionally, Prime Minister Narendra Modi specified five agendas for the fruitful celebration of the 75th Independence day. They are Freedom struggle, Ideas at 75, Actions at 75, Achievements at 75, and Resolve at 75. He added, “Today, India is doing things that could not be imagined even a few years ago. India has reached here gradually in these 75 years. There are so many people’s contributions in this journey.”

Moreover, 240 Olympians, 32 Olympic winners, and so many COVID warriors were honored at today’s event. The theme of the 75th Independence day is ‘Nation First, Always First’. 

Well, it’s not a single-day commemoration; PM Narendra Modi drafts a roadmap for the upcoming twenty-five years to build a stronger nation with everyone’s equal effort and dedication. Let’s have a look at what is to be expected from future India.

Gati Sakti Plan

PM Narendra Modi announced Pradhan Mantri Gati Shakti National Master Plan that sounds to be the biggest infrastructural progress jolt, no doubt. And, the investment sounded huge as it’s Rs. 100 Lakh Crores to set an exemplary foundation of infrastructure as well as employment opportunities in India. The main motto behind this Gati Sakti plan is to pave an integrated way to strengthen the country’s economy.

The Prime Minister has mentioned that the political will is one of the main attributes to bring the reforms for tomorrow.

Atmanirbhar Bharat Continues

We can recall this trademarked term from the tough timeline of the COVID pandemic from honorable Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He decides to stick to the same plan for the next 25 years when India will be celebrating its 100 years of independence. With the promises of new resolutions, the upcoming twenty-five years have been declared as Amrit Kaal for Indians.

The most essential services should be reaching out to the remotest nooks of the country and that will be a priority for the government. In addition, the differences between cities and villages and their lifestyle will gradually fade out. PM Narendra Modi even mentioned that the government will discard all those non-essential interference for the sake of the progress of the nation. 

Military Schools for Girls

‘Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao’ has been a tremendous success in India, and now, Indian girls can get an equal opportunity to get educated. Sainik schools will open across India and girls are allowed to get education for free. It all started with a Sainik school in Mizoram, almost two years ago. And, currently, there are thirty-three Sainik Schools operating in total.

Sainik Schools Society, governed by the administration department of the Ministry of Defence, takes care of these Sainik Schools. The objective of Sainik Schools is to offer education to kids so that they can prepare themselves to join the Indian armed forces.

Deliberate Movement towards COVID Handling and Vaccination

COVID-19 has introduced a new chapter in every country’s life and India is not an exception. Especially, there are more challenges in handling COVID measures in a nation that holds more than 130 crores of citizens. But, the fact is that India needs not to rely upon other countries for availing of COVID-19 vaccines. This is the ultimate win of scientists and industrialists.

Additionally, PM Narendra Modi didn’t forget to mention the contribution of Indians to prevent the infection at different phases. He did praise doctors, paramedics, and nurses for fighting against the pandemic. Many COVID warriors were honored in this auspicious ceremony of independence celebration. Till now, over 54 crore people have been vaccinated against this deadly disease. The process of manufacturing more and more vaccines will be continued without any interruption.

Farming Policies

Apart from producing the blueprint till the celebration of the 100th Independence day for India, PM Narendra Modi is hopeful with realistic approaches towards the farming culture of India. He realized that small farmers don’t receive the attention that they deserve. 

That’s why he pronounced ‘Chhota kisan bane desh ki shaan’ to empower small farmers. He mentioned that small farmers will be offered the privilege to avail of new facilities.

Hydrogen Mission

After the current pandemic situation, climate changes are the most endangering factors. Keeping that in mind, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has taken a step towards producing and exporting green hydrogen. India is becoming independent when it comes to energy production and distribution.

The dream of turning Indian Railways zero carbon emitter has been initiated. And, you can expect the task to be done by 2030.

Well, the journey from ‘Make in India’ to ‘Ek Bharat’ is incredible. And, the globe will be waiting for such huge changes in India, no doubt.

Realme GT

If you’re too concerned about the budget then Realme GT doesn’t underwhelm you. This is a powerhouse with jaw-dropping amenities provided at such an unimaginable price. What we find lucrative about this Android phone is its distinctive design. Combined with a faux leather and black streak at the back of the device, this phone is a show-stealer.

How to Access Android BootLoader?

After a certain period, Android devices start showing technical glitches to their users. Clearing cache might not help your Android device alone. Rebooting the BootLoader can fix your Android device’s long-term issues. However, what is BootLoader and what does it do?

The BootLoader is a low-level code on your Android device. It detects the Android which software will run at a specific timeline. BootLoader lets mandatory items run when your Android phone goes to recovery mode. Basically, Android systems start-up and respond to the kernel at the command of BootLoader.

Android BootLoader

Before the operating system begins running, the BootLoader needs to be executed. At the first stage of execution, BootLoader senses the external RAM and loads an additional program. In the next stage, BootLoader sets essential services such as memory, network, and all to make the kernel efficiently run. Rebooting the BootLoader isn’t an everyday task but you can access Fastboot to resolve Android issues.

How can you Enter BootLoader?

You might be hesitating a little before rebooting BootLoader. Restarting BootLoader will launch your Android device in BootLoader mode instead of normal mode. And, rest assured, nothing will be deleted from your Android device. Because BootLoader can’t do anything on your phone alone.

If you make any changes with the BootLoader mode then it will impact your Android device. For instance, all your smartphone’s data will be lost if you unlock BootLoader. It might be essential for security reasons on your Android device. However, let’s get back to the method by which you can access BootLoader mode.

If you want to launch the recovery mode, then press Volume Down, Volume Up, and Power buttons at the same time. When the screen dims, release the Volume Down button. However, keep the Volume Up and Power buttons on hold. Maintain those two keys until your device enters the Recovery mode.

HTC Devices
