Scintillating with joy and smiles, after being rescued from various flood-affected areas across Sangli district, women and girls here tied rakhis on the wrists of National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) personnel in Sangli’s Pakija Masjid area on Monday.
Many women and girls including lady police personnel expressed their gratitude towards security personnel by tying Rakhi on their wrists on Monday.
This comes a few days before the Hindu festival of Rakshabandhan - a day when women tie rakhi on the wrist of their brothers.
Several videos of women tying the rakhis made its way onto Twitter. Here’s one such clip:
