Bhai Dooj Celebration
Bhai Dooj Legends
Bhai Dooj is an auspicious occasion which is celebrated with great fervour and happiness all over the country. Brothers and sisters eagerly wait for this festival which strengthens the bond of love and care between them by recalling all the sweet memories of childhood and spending some time with each other. At the time of tika ceremony, sisters pray to God for the long life and well being of their brothers and at the same time, brothers vow to protect their sisters in any difficulty and to keep them happy till the end of their life. Sisters who are not able to meet at the time of Bhai Dooj send tika along with the gifts and puja thali to their brothers. And like every festival, this one has a beginning too, one which is truly engulfed in mythologies, more than one, with each narrating a different story as how this festival came to be celebrated.
