New Delhi, 29th August, 2023: This Rakshabandhan, Bikano, the prominent FMCG food brand deeply rooted in the cultural ethos of Bikaner, Rajasthan, extended its heartfelt celebration of sibling love to the children of the “Sweet Home” orphanage in Najafgarh. The brand’s latest endeavor, a heartfelt continuation of its ongoing #PyarkaMeethaBandhan campaign, aims to spread joy, create meaningful connections, and advocate for adoption as a profound way to expand the bonds of family.

In the spirit of Rakshabandhan, a festival that signifies the enduring bond between brothers and sisters, Bikano took a heartwarming step by visiting the “Sweet Home” orphanage. The children residing there were treated to a day of joy, festivities, and camaraderie. The event saw the exchange of not only gifts and sweets but also the tying of rakhi threads, symbolizing a newfound bond of care and protection.

Our visit to ‘Sweet Home’ was an enriching experience, and we are humbled to have shared the joy of Rakshabandhan with these wonderful children.”

The #PyarkaMeethaBandhan campaign, which began its journey last year, aims to touch hearts and kindle meaningful relationships while raising awareness about adoption as a profound act of compassion. The campaign’s latest installment portrays a touching narrative where a young boy’s wish for a sister to tie him a rakhi is fulfilled through adoption, reinforcing the idea that love knows no boundaries or limitations.

As Rakshabandhan’s festive fervor envelops the nation, Bikano’s commitment to fostering love, bonding, and compassion resonates deeply. The brand’s visit to the “Sweet Home” orphanage

and the continued efforts of the #PyarkaMeethaBandhan campaign serve as a testament to the power of love and unity that binds us all.
