With the same feelings in their hearts and to strengthen the love and bond with Indian Army soldiers, more than 70 girls from government schools tied rakhis on the wrist of soldiers posted at the Tawang headquarters and the India-China border at 15,000 ft in Bumla.

The Indian Army soldiers also promised to ensure well being of their rakhi sisters in the same way as they stand to protect our nation.
