Girls send Rakhis for jawans at Siachen, Leh

In a great gesture of solidarity with our soldiers, girl students and sisters from Bengal, Uttarakhand, Sikkim, Gujarat and Tamil Nadu, have sent thousands of Rakhis for the soldiers in Leh and Siachen.
These Rakhis are handmade by students. Little children, especially girls, are sending wonderful Rakhis and greeting cards with sweet messages to the jawans at Sikkim and Siachen.
These greeting cards were given to and Rakhis tied to the Jawans and officers in a Sikkim place on 5th August, . A large number of Rakhis have been sent at the border posts to the jawans through Army.
Similar Rakhis have been sent to Siachen and Leh Jawans also through a campaign under @Sisters4jawans initiated by i Tarun Vijay, president of Vidya Veerta Abhiyan and former MP, BJP.
From Tamil Nadu, where generally Rakhi is not observed, thousands of students from Bharani Vidyalaya , Karur, led and guided by Principal Ram Subramanian, national coordinator of Students and Youth for Thiruvalluvar , inspired girl students to prepare Rakhis and 15 thousand Rakhis received from them were sent to Siachen.
Air India carried these Rakhis to Bagdogra and Leh as a courtesy to soldiers.
Often it is the brother who is supposed to protect the sister on Rakhi, but this time sisters have taken the noble task of providing Raksha Kavach- the protective Shield to their brother jawans, said Tarun Vijay, the programme initiator.
