School students and teachers tied 'rakhi' to Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB) jawans on eve of 'Raksha Bandhan'. The event took place in Uttar Pradesh's Gorakhpur.

Women fed sweets to their 'rakhi' brothers. They tied 'rakhi' to jawans as they are usually away from their homes during all the festivals. At the same time, SSB jawans vowed to protect country and women in return. This year 'Raksha Bandhan' will be celebrated on August 15, bringing a patriotic feel to the festival.
