Bhai Dooj

Bhai Dooj, also known as Bhau Beej, is a Hindu festival observed on the second day of Shukla Paksha in the Kartik month. This celebration occurs two days after Diwali and exemplifies the bond of affection between sisters and brothers. During Bhai Dooj, sisters apply tilak on their brothers' foreheads and extend wishes for their long and prosperous lives.

Commonly celebrated on the day following Govardhan Puja, Bhai Dooj is tied to a mythological story involving Yamraj and Mother Yamuna. This festival is a symbolic expression of the special relationship between siblings, reflecting the warmth and care shared within families.
