Every year markets in the capital display a huge variety of Rakhis, and every year there exists a trend of a type of Rakhi. Well, this year the trend and one which is a huge success among Delhi’s youth are rakhis bearing a caricature of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
The other types of rakhis, which are giving a tough competition to the Modi rakhi, are those which bear caricatures of Chhota Bheem, Mighty Raju, Ben 10, Diego, Ninja Hathori, Doraemon and Pokemon.
Another rakhi in hot demand is a combination of Chhota Bheem and Modi with “Desh ka Hero” written across it.
” NaMo rakhis are must have for staunch BJPites like us. But, you will be surprised to see how kids are recognising him and are willing to buy the rakhis as well,” says Mukesh, owner of a shop in Lajpat Nagar.
The popularity of the Prime Minister has increased among little kids, owing to televisions. Indian markets always come up with interesting trends during festivals each year, so it was not surprising at all that such an unthinkable and interesting combination of Chhota Bheem and Narendra Modi came up. Moreover, these rakhis are selling like hot cakes now.
“I have seen him on TV. I am sure my colony friends will be jealous of me when I show them my unique Modi rakhi. He is as popular as Chhota Bheem or Ben 10. Everyone has Spiderman rakhis, so I want a Modi rakhi from my sister this year,” says a little kid who was shopping with his mother in Laxmi Nagar.
Though the tiny tots are enthusiastic about the NaMo rakhis, the older ones are skeptical. They wonder if wearing a NaMo rakhi would mean that they are voluntarily showing their solidarity to BJP. Some even wonder if it is strategic campaigning on part of the BJP government.
