Happy Bhai Dooj

                                  Bhai Dooj

Bhai Dooj is the one of the important festival of Hindus which is celebrated on the fifth day of Diwali. This festival marks the end of the Diwali celebrations. Bhai Dooj festival indicates the love and affection of the brothers and sisters. On this day, the sisters put the Tilak on the forehead of their brothers, and give them sweets and pray for their healthy long life. 

The story behind this festival is based on that incident in which Yama (the God of death) visit to his sister’s home after the long period of time. His sister, Yami was so excited and welcomed him by putting the good luck mark on his forehead for his well being. Both of them shared the meal. Yama was thrilled by his sister’s affection, love and welcome. Then he proudly blessed his sister that every year on Bhai Dooj, if a sister will put a Tilak on her brother’s forehead then no one will be able to harm her brother. 

After that, the tradition of a Tilak ceremony started and sister performs the Puja for their brother’s safety and long life. In return, brother gives gifts to their sisters as the token of love.
