Ahead of Raksha Bandhan, widows of Vrindavan sent Rakhi to Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday. She will not be able to celebrate Rakhi in person with PM Modi for the second year in a row due to the COVID-19 pandemic. A total of 251 rakhis prepared by a group of elderly widows living in the temple town of western Uttar Pradesh have been sent to the prime minister, an NGO helping widows said. The Sulabh Hope Foundation said the rakhis have colorful photographs of the prime minister and many of them carry a message of caution against the pandemic and Modi's call for a 'self-reliant India'.
