A college student, dressed in traditional attire, ties a rakhi on the wrist of a Border Security Force soldier as a symbolic gesture during celebrations marking the Hindu festival of Raksha Bandhan, at the India-Pakistan border post of Wagah on Wednesday. Rakhis are sacred threads tied onto the wrist of a brother by a sister on Raksha Bandhan day to celebrate the bond between them, with the brother vowing to protect her henceforth.
