People across country celebrated Raksha Bandhan on August 3 in their own unique ways.

'Festivals have no religion,' this was quiet evident when Muslim women in Kanpur tied Rakhi to Hindu brothers.

In view of COVID-19 pandemic, people in Amritsar preferred to tie 'mauli' instead of Rakhi and made sweets at home instead of buying it from shops.

They also tied masks on each other's face.

In the national capital, people maintained social distancing norms while purchasing rakhi and sweets.
