The beauty of brothers and sisters relationship cannot be explained in words. It is a feeling that binds the two hearts and Rakhsa Bandhan is the occasion to mark this relationship.
Every household celebrates Rakhi, but the Jawans at the border are those heroes who are constantly protecting us and are away from their home during such occasions.
