On the occasion of Rakshabandhan, many women and children tied the rakhi on Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s hand here today.

This Hindu festival, which celebrates the love and duty between brothers and sisters, is primarily observed in India, Mauritius and parts of Nepal.

It is also celebrated by Hindus and Sikhs in parts of Pakistan and by some people of Indian origin around the world.

On Rakshabandhan, sisters tie a rakhi (sacred thread) on brothers’ wrist, which symbolizes the sister’s love and prayers for her brother’s well-being and the brother’s lifelong vow to protect her.
