On the auspicious occasion of Raksha Bandhan, Chief Minister PS Golay hosted a event in collaboration with Brahma Kumaris Sikkim, aimed at unity, peace, and self-discovery among the staff and officials of the Chief Minister’s Office (CMO).

Sherpa, Minister of PHE Department Bhim Hang Subba, Former Minister G.M. Gurung, and followers of Brahma Kumari, among other dignitaries.
Brahma Kumaris, known for their emphasis on meditation and self-realization, played a significant role during the event. They highlighted the importance of Raksha Bandhan, a festival that transcends religious boundaries and signifies the bond of protection and care between individuals. The organization’s involvement in Raksha Bandhan celebrations extends to diverse locations, including prisons and schools, showcasing their all-encompassing approach.
One of the highlights of the event was the premiere of the music video “Hamra Pyara Sikkim” by Hillman Films. The video beautifully captured the essence of Sikkim and its people, adding a touch of cultural significance to the celebration.
