After the Horrors of the Second Wave, Ranchi walks cautiously on Raksha Bandhan | Ranchi News



Ranchi: Seema Sahu (17), a student from Bano in Simdega, was unable to return home for Raksha Bandhan on Sunday but that did not prevent her from observing the festivities. Seema reached Firayalal Chowk in Ranchi on Sunday morning and tied rakhis to the jawans on duty of Jharkhand Police and India Reserve Battalion and also offered them candy.
Priti Tiwary, a 28-year-old housewife from Harmu Housing, came down from Bengaluru to celebrate Rakhi with her brother. “I got married two years ago and couldn’t make it home last year due to the Covid-19 lockdown. As there are fewer cases this time around, I decided to come, ”Priti told TOI.
Ipshita Mazumdar, a hotel management intern at a five-star hotel in New Delhi, was unable to return home. “Last year I was home due to confinement and tied rakhi to my brothers. But I got a job this year and couldn’t do it. However, it was virtual Raksha Bandhan for me this time, ”Ipshita told TOI over the phone.
Restaurants across town opened for diners but the crowds were not like in previous years. “There were over 100 active cases in Ranchi last week. After the horrors that unfolded before our eyes during the second wave, we thought it was best to celebrate at home with our siblings, ”said Piyush Verma, a resident of Doranda.
It was also a quiet family celebration for many politicians. Chief Minister Hemant Soren drove to his father Shibu Soren’s Morhabadi residence, where he celebrated Rakhi with his sisters. Former Chief Minister Raghubar Das opened up his inhabitants of Agrico to visitors and accepted Rakhi from several women in the neighborhood.
BJP Mahila Morcha officials linked the rakhis to CRPF jawans who are stationed at their camp in Tiril just outside the city. A group of students tied rakhis to a Kalpataru tree in Hinoo to spread the message of environmental conservation.
