    Bhai dooj is a traditional Hindu ritual performed to increase the bond of brothers and sisters. In other words i can say it as; they are similar to rakhi festival. This is celebrated after two days of Diwali. In Nepal they call it as “Bhai tika” whereas in Marathi they call it as “Bhav Bij”. This is very famous in the northern side. This is a special day where all the loving sisters will pray for the well being and prosperity of their lovely brothers. The sisters will put some (vermilion spot) on their brother’s forehead. They even offer sweets and much other stuff.
