Rajganj, 11th August: Today, Raksha Bandhan is being observed all over the nation to celebrate the bond between a brother and a sister. To commemorate the festival, the students of a private school in Fulbari tied rakhi to the soldiers of the 195th Batallion stationed at the Indo-Bangladesh border in Fulbari. The soldiers away from home were seen quite ecstatic with happiness with the rakhi on their wrists.
