Raksha Bandhan is one of the most auspicious Indian festivals as it celebrates the bond between a brother and sister. On the occasion, sisters are tying Rakhi on their brother’s hand and are getting gifts in return. However, some siblings are not able to enjoy the auspicious festival as they are living away from each other. India’s star sprinter Hima Das also belongs to that category and her latest Twitter post is nothing but heart-touching. Taking to the micro-blogging website, the 20-year-old athlete wished her brothers on the occasion and said that this time ‘Tinti’ will Rakhi on their hand as she's away but Hima also reminded them to keep her gifts ready as she’s will be with them in next year’s Raksha Bandhan. Raksha Bandhan 2020: From MS Dhoni-Jayanti Gupta to Virat Kohli-Bhawna to Jasprit Bumrah-Juhika, Meet Supportive Sisters of Your Favourite Indian Cricketers!
