There are two kinds of people- one that you feel blessed to have in your life and the other you wish Thanos' snap would obliterate. The efforts of the former in making your world a better place, one udhaar ki cigarette at a time, needs to be recognized. Here are the people we should tie a rakhi kyunki Bhai hai tu apna yaar.


1. Our Superheroes Who Live For The Nation & Die For The Nation

Our Raksha Bandhan celebrations are incomplete without sending best wishes to Indian soldiers because before anyone else they are the ones who deserve these wishes the most. We may not tie Rakhi to you but despite that, without any fail, during good or bad, from day and night, in health and in sickness, each and every day of your life, you have surrendered it to the protection of your countrymen. You are always standing like a strong shield protecting us from our enemies and keeping us safe. We wish you good health and eternal happiness on the occasion of Raksha Bandhan.
