BHAIYA DOOJ

BHAIYA DOOJ

This year, Bhaiya Dooj festival, falls on 6 november, Saturday

The Bhaiya Dooj Festival is similar to Raksha Bandhan.On Bhaiya Dooj, sisters pray for their brothers to have long and happy lives by performing the Tika ceremony and brothers offer gifts to their sisters..

According to a popular legend in Hindu mythology, after slaying the evil demon Narakasura, Lord Krishna visited his sister Subhadra who gave him a warm welcome with sweets and flowers. She also affectionately applied tilaka on Krishna's forehead. Some believe this to be the origin of the festival. And thus now it is added to our culture and it is a tradition in India to apply tilak on a brother's forehead and offer him sweets . Similarly, a brother offers gifts to his sister .

The festival of Bhai Dooj is also celebrated by the Hindus of Nepal where it is known as Bhai Tika. The occasion of Bhai Tika or Kija Puja is celebrated on the fifth day of the Tihar festival which is equivalent to the Diwali celebrations of India. Bhai Tika falls on the Dwitiya of Kartik Sukla Paksha every year according to the Vikram Samvat calendar.

Different types of delicacies are made and this festival is celebrated with lots of joy and happiness. Sweets and gifts are offered at this festival. The bond of love between brothers and sister is celebrated.
