It's Raksha Bandhan time and siblings around the nation are celebrating a day when brothers make a special promise to their sisters. This is one of those occasions, when we get to see our politicians, just like us, share a special day with their loved ones.

The Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who is also widely referred to as Narendrabhai , also celebrated this day with Indian citizens. He shared pictures on Twitter, being the social media-savvy leader that he is.
