Another festival to celebrate the bond between a brother and sister is the Bhai Dooj, which is celebrated on the fifth day of Diwali week and it marks the ending of the 5 days long Diwali week. On this day, sisters apply tikka on their brother’s forehead, offering him sweets and gifts and pray for their well being. In return, their brothers present them a gift to surprise them and promising them that they will take care of their sister’s well being and happiness forever.
Just like every other Indian festival, even Bhai Dooj has a story behind which stands as the backbone of that festival. Even Bhai Dooj has some interesting stories behind it out of which one says that after defeating the devil Narakasura, Lord Krishna went to his sister’s(Subhadra) place and get treated very nicely as Subhadra welcomes him with sweets, dishes, flowers, and lamps. Also, she applies the Tilak on Lord Krishna’s forehead after which that day was celebrated as what we call “Bhai Dooj”.
