Amma Tell Me About Raksha Bandhan!
Children love Raksha Bandhan but do they know how this tradition began? Join the siblings Klaka and Kiki as they celebrate Rakhi with their sister Maya and hear Amma narrates the stories behind the festival - of what Lakshmi had to do to get her husband back, of how Indra emerged victorious after nearly losing a battle and how Rabindranath Tagore foiled a well laid plan of the British empire. For ages 2 to 8.
