Watch: Women, children tie rakhi to PM Modi
On the occasion of Raksha Bandhan on Saturday, women and children from various segments of society called on Prime Minister Narendra Modi at his residence and tied rakhis on his wrist. The prime minister blessed the children and conveyed his best wishes to everyone on the occasion. Raksha Bandhan is a Hindu festival that celebrates the love and duty between brothers and sisters. On Raksha Bandhan, sisters tie a rakhi (sacred thread) on her brother's wrist. This symbolizes the sister's love and prayers for her brother's well-being, and the brother's lifelong vow to protect her.
