The Border Security Force (BSF) personnel celebrated Diwali with locals near the international border in RS Pura area of Jammu on Tuesday.  These BSF jawans are away from their families and have committed themselves to the task of protecting the nation's borders. Still, it does not stop them from celebrating their festivals at the border, which they call their 'home'.

We are away from our actual homes, but this place is also our home. We do our duty here 24 hours, seven days a week, 365 days a year and we celebrate our festivals here. We are committed to protecting our borders, our jawans are doing our duty well so that our countrymen can celebrate their festivals. Happy Diwali to everyone," said Surjeet Singh, DIG, BSF.
