Raksha Bandhan, also Rakshabandhan, or simply Rakhi, is an Indian and Nepalese festival centred around the tying of a thread, bracelet or talisman on the wrist as a form of bond and ritual protection. The festive Hindu and Jain ritual is one principally between brothers and sisters, observed both before and after she gets married thereby marking her continued relationship with her natal home and brothers. The rite is also found between priests and patrons, and sometimes by individuals to real or potential benefactors. Differing versions of the rite have been traditionally performed in northern India, western India, Nepal, and some Hindu, Jain and Sikh emigrants from the India subcontinent since the 19th-century. It is alternately referred to as Saluno, Silono, and Rakri. The rituals associated with these rites, however, have spread beyond their traditional regions to much of India and have been transformed through technology and migration, the movies, social interaction, and promotion by politicized Hinduism, as well as as a occasion of national solidarity and state tradition.

Juneteenth, which is also known as Freedom Day or Emancipation Day, is a combination of “June” and “nineteenth,” in honor of the day that Granger announced the abolition of slavery in Texas.
A holiday celebrated on June 19 that commemorates the end of slavery in the United States. Across the country, the day is marked with events and parades.
A Juneteenth celebration in Austin, Texas, in 1900. On June 19, 1865, nearly two hundred thousand enslaved people were emancipated in the state.
By the time word of freedom had drifted west to Texas, it was old news elsewhere. On June 19, 1865, the nearly two hundred thousand men, women, and children enslaved in Texas learned of their emancipation, two and a half years after Lincoln had issued the proclamation terminating slavery in states rebelling against the union.
The institution of slavery was essentially an open-air prison, and proved remarkably successful, at least in this instance, at the kind of information control that exploitation relies on.
Juneteenth, the annual celebration marking the day that this postponed freedom arrived in Texas, occupies a strange niche in American culture, isolated as a black tradition, as if the currents of slavery and its death did not shape the direction of the nation in its entirety.
On this Juneteenth, we have received the ambivalent blessing of clarity. We recognize the historic demise of an institution that justified the separating of parent from child in Texas only to see that phenomenon occur in a different time, under different circumstances, but with a similar trauma inflicted on children.
The central value of history is to serve as inoculation against the stupidity, ignorance, and cruelties of the past. Yet the rearguard implications of Trumpism have been apparent since the day in June, 2015, when he rode down the escalator in Trump Tower and announced his Presidential campaign.
It should not be forgotten that most of the children who are now being detained at the border are either from Mexico or sought to enter the United States through that country. They “are not sending their best people,” Trump said in that announcement, as he accused Mexicans of being criminals and rapists.
He has repeated that charge in recent months and, on Monday, in defense of his Administration’s actions, tweeted that “children are being used by some of the worst criminals on earth as a means to enter our country.” Attorney General Jeff Sessions has accused families who arrive at the border of “smuggling” children into the country, making no distinction between a child’s parents and human traffickers.
There has been not a single year when Cannes has come out clean of disputes and disagreements. As the festival comes around the corner this ya=ear as well, there is a long trail of controversies and stick behind the much-anticipated film festival.
The festival, that will run from may 8th, will also screen a movie called, Rafiki which is banned in its own country Kenya because it promoted lesbianism. This will be the first movie from Kenya to ever get a screening at Cannes.
festival director Thierry Fremaux is battling with Netflix because of the law passed that a movie cannot take part in the competition until it had a theatrical French release. This law made it difficult for Netflix movies to fight the battle of the biggest honor Palme d’Or as Netflix titles don’t play in French theatres and instead appear directly on the digital service.
Fremaux has introduced radical changes in screening schedules for the Press as well. He has declared that the Press this year will not have the privilege of watching a film before its production team and other invitees as it spoils the surprise element of the film. According to Freemaux, the comments and reviews posted on the social media rob the movie of its surprise element, so this decision will make a movie truly a world premiere.
This is just the beginning. Cannes has many more controversies attached to its name that Netflix and screenings. Iranian Director, Jafar Panahi’s ‘Three Faces’ will also see the daylight at Cannes, however, the director himself won’t be traveling to the festival because he is under some kind of house arrest in Teheran and has been banned from making cinema for 20 years
