Indian under-priviledged girls tie 'rakhi' or sacred threads around the wrist of their brothers with a picture of a mosquito to create awareness of disease born by the insects, during the festival of Raksha Bandhan in Kolkata on August 10, 2014. An NGO organised 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 colourful thread, a simple bracelet, or a decorative string, around the wrist of her brother.
