Sent rakhis and messages to jawans posted at Kargil, Siachen and Galwan valley
Continuing the tradition Vadodara school teacher Sanjay Bachhav send 12,000 Rakhis this year to Indian Army jawans guarding the borders of the country. The campaign, which started five years ago, is getting a huge response as not only Vadodara but rakhis and messages are also coming from abroad for the jawans for their well being in this time of year when the whole world is fighting with Coronavirus.
Indian Army personnel are on duty round the clock and 24 hours a day to protect the country from the evil intentions of the enemies. When we all are celebrating the festivals they are away from their families to protect us. In order to make them feel like family school teacher Sanjay Bachhav started the campaign six years ago and sending Rakhis to them every year. Every piece of rakhi has the emotional message for the jawans from their sisters and mothers.
This year more than 12,000 rakhis were collected and send to the jawans even during the time of global coronavirus outbreak. The rakhis along with greeting cards and messages received from 28 states of India and those living abroad were sent to Kargil, Siachen and Galwan valley from Vadodara.
Students worshipped the rakhis just like sisters and then packed them with messages for the jawans mentioning their names and mobile numbers in a tricolour color box. The boxes then posted to Kargil, Siachen and Galwan valley showing the gratitude to the jawans. The jawans many times called back on the given numbers and also send gifts to their sisters.
The students involved in the campaign said, they scrutinise and packed the rakhis in packets. The sisters sending rakhis have also send messages of their health, well being and give strength for victory over their enemies.
