Raksha Bandhan, a festival of togetherness, fun, sharing and warm moments. This festival liberates us from the boredom of daily routine and provide the much needed time to rejuvenate the bond of love, shared by a brother and sister. Society for the Confluence of Festivals in India (SCFI) seeks to develop a sustainable programme that will assist the people of modern world to understand the true essence of Raksha Bandhan : emotionally, socially and spiritually.
As a socially responsible manifestation, Society for the Confluence of Festivals in India endeavors to create value for the Indian society by introducing the beauty, grace and wisdom embodied in the various festivals of India, thereby preserving India's rich cultural heritage. We bring unique customs, traditions and goodness of Indian festivals to form a distinct association known as the Society for the Confluence of Festivals in India. Through this organization, we hope to form a mutual respect for and foster the common bond that various Indian festivals share.
The great diversity of Indian religious beliefs is projected through the various festivals that are celebrated in India. They arise from the innate desire of man to seek diversion from humdrum activities that help in symbolizing, reflecting and enriching social life in a specific cultural setting. SCFI seeks to conserve and promote an awareness of this rich and diversified cultural treasure amongst the citizen of this country through various expositions that focus on the tradition of excellence, conversing the famous legends, rituals, mythology and philosophy of Indian Festivals and in turn facilitating an awareness of their deeper and subtler values.SCFI On Raksha Bandhan
