INDIA-RELIGION-RAKSHA BANDHAN

Dalbir Kaur, (C), sister of Sarabjit Singh, an Indian death row prisoner fatally assaulted in Pakistan, ties a sacred thread or rakhi onto the wrist of an Indian Border Security Force (BSF) soldier at the Indo-Pakistan Wagah border post on August 21, 2013. The annual festival of Raksha Bandhan, which commemorates the abiding ties between siblings of opposite sex, is marked by a very simple ceremony in which a woman ties a rakhi, which may be a colorful thread, a simple bracelet, or a decorative string, around the wrist of her brother.
