Patna: A video has gone viral on X (formerly Twitter) where a popular online tutor named Khan Sir saw a staggering 7,000 female students of his sisters tying rakhi to him on the occassion of Rakshbandhan.
According to reports, the programme was organised at a coaching centre here by Khan Sir on Wednesday. Over 10,000 students from different batches had visited the centre hoping to tie rakhi to their favourite teacher. The rakhi tying event lasted for over two and a half hours.
An overwhelmed Khan Sir claimed this is a world record as something like this has never taken place before. "I can't lift my hand now as over 7,000 rakhis are tied on my hand. When I unknot them, I can give you the exact figure."
Speaking exclusively to news channel AajTak, Khan Sir revealed that he doesn't have a sister of his own; hence he decided to consider all these girls as his sisters. He claimed that he gets rakhis tied by his students every year. He confidently stated that no one in the world would have had as many rakhis tied as him.
Since the video of the event went viral, netizens reacted on X (formely Twitter), saying Khan Sir has given competition to PM Modi.
While some people showed surprise at this tweet, one of the quoted tweets read "All this can happen at a coaching centre."
Here is a YouTube video where professor Khan sir is seen being proud of his sisters and this festival.
Raksha Bandhan, a deeply cherished festival in India, celebrates the extraordinary bond between siblings. Translating to "the bond of protection," Raksha Bandhan is marked by the ritual of a sister tying a sacred thread, or rakhi, around her brother's wrist. In return, the brother vows to protect and support his sister throughout their lives. This tradition is not limited to blood siblings; it extends to cousins, close friends, and even honorary relationships.
