Hindus celebrate the Rakhi bandhan festival on the full moon of Shravan. Sister ties rakhi on brother’s hand as a symbol of love. But this time, a woman from Rajasthan, India showed her love for the animal by tying a rakhi on the tiger’s leg.
A picture of a leopard tying a rakhi in a village in Rajasthan has gone viral on social media.
In a picture shared on Twitter, a woman wearing a pink saree, with a veil on her head, can be seen tying Rakhi to the legs of a leopard.
According to this Tithi, from Thursday August 11 to Friday morning August 12 was the auspicious time to wear Rakhi. At that auspicious moment, the woman from Rajasthan showed a unique example of love for forest animals by tying a rakhi on the legs of a leopard.
The Rajasthan Forest Department said that somehow the injured leopard entered the village. By not harassing or beating the tiger, the villagers sympathize with the animal. The villagers handed over the cheetah to the forest department. Before that, the woman put Rakhi on the tiger’s feet on Rakhi Bandhan Tithi.
Sushant Nanda, an Indian forest official in Rajasthan,
wrote on Twitter with a picture of a cheetah wearing rakhi on its feet, ‘In India, humans and wild animals have been living together in a bond of unconditional love for ages. The same picture was seen in a village in Rajasthan. A lady wears a rakhi (symbol of love and brotherly love) to an injured leopard, setting an example of eternal love. After that he handed over the cheetah to the forest department.
The picture of Cheetah wearing Rakhi has already received a response on social media. The woman is floating in praise. One Twitter user said, ‘That’s how it should be. We have to co-exist with forest and wild animals. God created the world not only for humans.’
