PM hosts 103-year-old on Raksha Bandhan

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

This Raksha Bandhan was a special one for 103-year-old Sharbati Devi as she got a chance to tie a rakhi on the wrist of Prime Minister Modi.

She was invited for the same by the prime minister himself.

Devi lost her brother about 50 years ago, and would always miss him, especially on Raksha Bandhan, the PMO said.

Her son wrote to the prime minister who invited the elderly woman and her family to his residence today.

Sharbati Devi was extremely delighted to meet the prime minister and tie a rakhi. They had a wonderful interaction, the PMO added.

Earlier, some young girls also tied rakhis on the prime minister's wrist.
