Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - HT Navi Mumbai Live - - NAVI MUMBAI -

The Vashi po­lice along with its Dak­shata Com­mit­tees or­gan­ised a rakhi ty­ing pro­gramme at Fr Agnel Bal Bha­van in Vashi on Thurs­day.

The pro­gramme or­gan­ised by se­nior po­lice in­spec­tor of Vashi po­lice sta­tion Ajayku­mar Landge was held to bring the chil­dren into main­stream so­ci­ety and also to up­lift the im­age of the po­lice. The more than 100 chil­dren were treated to sweets af­ter be­ing tied rakhis by Vashi po­lice women of­fi­cers and per­son­nel.

Landge said, “Rak­sha­band­han de­notes the love of a brother and sis­ter and strength­ens their bond. How­ever, there are many in our so­ci­ety, who do not have such re­la­tions and feel left out. It is in this con­text that we planned the event to en­sure that the or­phan kids at the Bal Bha­van too have a great time on this fes­ti­val day.

Vaishali Thomas, an of­fi­cial from the ashram, said: “This is a no­ble ges­ture by the Vashi po­lice. Such pro­grammes help chil­dren as­sim­i­late into the main­stream and be a part of so­ci­ety.”

Po­lice sub-in­spec­tor Jy­oti Surya­van­shi said, “This is the first time I have tied a rakhi to an or­phan. It was an emo­tional mo­ment for me.”

Landge said, “Pro­grammes like th­ese bring the po­lice and var­i­ous sec­tions of the so­ci­ety closer. It not only gives a hu­man face to the po­lice, but also gives us an in­sight into the minds of the peo­ple.”
