Are you a cool brother to your sister?
The fifth day of Diwali is celebrated as Bhai Beej, widely known as Bhai Dooj. The name itself signifies the day of the festival, which falls on second day after the new moon. According to a legend, Yamraj went to the house of his sister, who put a Tilak on his forehead for his welfare. Thus, on this day sisters pray for their brothers' safety and well being. In return, brothers give gifts to their sisters as a token of love.
Lord Krishna is also associated with this festival. Another legend says that after killing Narakasur, Krishna went to his sister Subhadra, who greeted him traditionally, putting auspicious mark on his forehead.
Bhai Beej is a part and parcel of Diwali. The festival is incomplete without Bhai Beej celebration. The festival is also known as Bhav Bij in Maharashtra, Bhai Phota in West Bengal and in Nepal, it is Bhai Tika.
Bhai Beej has its own significance in maintaining the love between brothers and sisters because it is the day of not only sharing food and gifts but also reaching out to the inner most depths of the hearts.
