BSF soldiers celebrated Rakhi at border in Jammu

Its Raksha Bandhan tommorrow and what can be a better way to celebrate the festival at the border. It was indeed a day to remember for these BSF officials.

Staying far from their homes, with few comforts and not knowing when they will they return. This is a story of every soldier posted on the border, guarding the nation. Small gestures mean a lot to these men, so it was no wonder that the sight of a group of school girls arriving with Rakhis brought broad smiles to their faces. It was indeed a moment of exuberance for these BSF soldiers stationed at Octrai Chowki at the Indo-Pakistan border near Suchetgarh in Jammu.

Students were elated as they feel the soldiers have a tough life living far away from their homes. The occasion became special for many as they do not have brothers.

The festival of Rakhi has had a deep significance in our lives, but for these soldiers the festival went beyond a mere red thread and some laddoos.
