Poonch November 6 (KINS): Women celebrated ‘Bhai Dooj’ with Indian army soldiers in Jammu and Kashmir’s Poonch on Saturday.
Women applied ‘tika’ on the forehead of the army personnel and performed other rituals.
Bhai Dooj, the festival symbolizing the love of brother-sister, is being celebrated all over the country today.
