“You don’t really need modernity in order to exist totally and fully. You need a mixture of modernity and tradition.”These lines of Theodore Bikel are somewhere the fact of everyday life. You are living in a world where you will come across the new trend every day. But to cope up with this modern era, you don’t need to acquire the new tradition in your life. What you need is the complete blend of both: the modernity and tradition. The same happens in the case of festivals and culture. As we all know that Raksha Bandhan is around the corner, and we have also witnessed many changes in the way and custom of this festival. Designer Rakhis has taken over the traditional vermilion threads. If you are thinking about sending Rakhi to your brother, then you can surely pick designer Rakhi for brother on this Raksha Bandhan.
“The modernity of yesterday is the tradition of today, and the modernity of today will be tradition tomorrow.” With these lines of Joes Andres, you must have an idea that nothing remains permanent in the trend. Everything will become old, and everything will go out of fashion. So, instead of going with the flow and diving deep in following the trend, one should not forget the roots. This same go for the festivals. Raksha Bandhan has evolved so much with the advancing technology and advancing trend. People with new taste and a new mindset demand new things and changes which has made our traditions more flexible and modern. But, for those whose mentality is that with changes and adapting modern culture out tradition will be lost, then it is totally out of context. Here, we are talking about the blend of modernity and tradition, not about modernity overcoming the tradition. Both these thoughts have completely different meaning and different context and everyone should know the difference between both.
Raksha Bandhan is not the festival which has added in our Indian culture yesterday. It is the one in which you must have noticed the pom-pom Rakhis and the floral vermilion threads used instead of the kids Rakhis and designer Rakhis. This is the festival in which sisters fast for their brothers and pray for his well-being. It is also the festival which was known for the boxes loaded with sweets.
But now something has changed and something has recreated, but the feelings are the same and the motive is still to make the brother and sister bond stronger and lifelong. Now, you can see the pom-pom Rakhis got replaced or revamped with the designer and fancy Rakhis, you must have also noticed that the sweets have also an alternative now i.e., cakes and dry-fruits, and above all the brothers and sisters are now living miles away from each other due to their studies or jobs. But all these changes have no effect on the bonding of the brother and sister. Everything can be changed and reprised, but the one thing that will remain the same is the immense love of a sister for her brother and the unspoken promises of brothers to their sisters. This has made the festival of Rakhi a sole festival for which every sibling pair waits eagerly every year.
So, before recreating anything with new thoughts and new trend, the one thing that needs to be reframed is the mentality to accept the things as it is, and adding anything do not believe in completely change its existence but try to make it a blend.
