People tie rakhis to trees, pledge to protect them in Jharkhand

In Mutur village near Jamshedpur in Jharkhand, India, women celebrated the festival of Raksha Bandhan by tying rakhis to trees. A similar ritual was observed about 900 kilometres away in Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh, where school children tied rakhis to trees. In both cases, the act of tying a rakhi was symbolic of taking a pledge to protect the environment and conserve forests, according to a global media report. 

In Lucknow, school children tied rakhis with the words “Ped lagao, paryavaran bachao (Plant trees, save the environment)” written on them.

The festival of Raksha Bandhan is celebrated in the holy month of Shravana during full moon or Purnima day. On the occasion, sisters tie a sacred thread called rakhi to their brothers’ wrists and brothers, in turn, promise they will always protect their sisters.
