Jaipur: Raksha Bandhan is a festival where sisters tie rakhis on their brother’s wrists while praying for their success. But there are a few sisters whose brothers are no more in this world.
But for these sisters, the brothers are still alive. These are the sisters of martyrs of Shekhawati in Rajasthan. For the sisters of the brave martyrs of Shekhawati, their brother is still alive and these sisters are celebrating Raksha Bandhan today (August 3) by tying rakhis on the wrists of the statues of their brother.
According to these sisters, their brother has sacrificed his life for the country and for crores of sisters like them. So, they believe that their brother is still alive. These sisters remember their brother on Raksha Bandhan by tying rakhis on the wrists of the statues of their brother. They also pray for the safety of men who are guarding India’s borders. Their eyes go moist when they remember their brother but they say that they are proud of the sacrifice.
Every year, martyr Mahesh Kumar’s sisters go to Rajasthan’s Bhairunpura on Raksha Bandhan, where they tie rakhis on the wrists of the statues of their brother. Other sisters of the village too come and do the same. Not only in Bhairunpura, but also in Sikar Churu Jhunjhunu district of Shekhawati, on Raksha Bandhan, the sisters tie rakhis on the wrists of the statues of the martyred brothers and remember them.
