Raksha Bandhan celebrated with Canton Township officials
Indian American children in Canton celebrated Raksha Bandhan with Canton, Township Supervisor and public safety officials.
Rakha bandhan, the popular ceremony influenced by Hindu culture is celebrated annually to symbolize the bond of love, trust and security between a sister and brother.
Children belonging the Balagokulam organization in Canton, through this gesture, have honored the work police and fire fighters do to keep the community safe.
Canton is a welcoming place…
Canton Township thrives as a welcoming place for all cultures and is home to thousands of Indian origin residents.
Balagokulam is a forum for children to discover and manifest that divinity. It enables Hindu children in the US to appreciate their cultural roots and learn Hindu values. This is done through weekly planned activities, which include games, yoga, stories, bhajans (songs), shlokas (prayers), and arts and crafts.
