Bhai Dooj 2017

Bhai Dooj(भाई दूज)/Bhau-Beej/Bhai Tika/Bhai Phonta(ভাইফোঁটা) is a celebration celebrated by Hindus of India and Nepal on the second lunar day of Shukla Paksha (brilliant fortnight) in the Vikram Samvat Hindu timetable month of Kartika. It is praised amid the Diwali or Tihar celebration.

The festivals of this day are like the celebration of Raksha Bandhan. On this day, sisters get blessings from siblings.

In the southern piece of the nation, the day is praised as Yama Dwitiya.

Upon the arrival of the celebration, sisters welcome their siblings for a rich feast regularly including their most loved dishes/desserts. The method might be diverse in bihar and focal india. The entire service connotes the obligation of a sibling to secure his sister, and in addition a sister's gifts for her sibling.

Conveying forward the function in customary style, sisters perform aarti for their sibling and apply a red tika on the sibling's brow. This tika service on the event of Bhai Bij connotes the sister's sincerest petitions for the long and upbeat existence of her sibling and treat them with blessings. Consequently siblings favor their sisters and may treat them additionally with blessings or money.

As it is standard in Haryana, Maharashtra to commend the propitious event of Bhau-beej, ladies who don't have a sibling love the moon god. They apply mehendi on young ladies as their convention.

The sister whose sibling lives far from her and can not go to her home, sends her sincerest supplications for the long and cheerful existence of her sibling through the moon god. She performs aarti for the moon. This is the motivation behind why offspring of Hindu guardians tenderly call the moon Chandamama (Chanda implies moon and mom means mother's sibling).
