The Head Mistress of Rampurhat Girls’ High School, Chhaya Chatterjee said, “As this year Independence Day was coincided with Raksha Badhan on same day so we tried to produce some cultural program with incorporating both the elements. one program showed that once India & Bangladesh used to be a same state but due to partition, it was divided. we tried to show the lost brotherhood of India & Bangladesh on this Raksha Bandhan through songs of Rabindranath Tagore as National anthem of both countries were written by Rabindranath Tagore.”
A Teacher of school said, ” Students danced on ‘Ek Sutre Badhiyachi Sohosroti Mon’ song which translates to ‘Our hearts are tied to the same thread.’ This song was written by Rabindranath Tagore when British divided the Bengal on basis of religions. Rabindranath Tagore had tried to promote unity through this song and encouraged Hindus in West Bengal to tie Rakhi to Muslims in East Bengal.”
