A small function was arranged at the ashram to honour the soldiers on the day of Rakhi. As a mark of respect love and gratitude, the kids of the ashram kids tied rakhi on their hands, applied tilak on their forehead, waved arati, and fed them with sweets.
Inspector J Jonah Alfred addressed the kids and said, they as soldiers following Dharma to protect the country. “You have to study well, develop skills according to your taste and serve the country in whichever way possible. You don’t need to be in the military for that.” He inspired them to follow dharma so that we will have a better world.
