BHAI DOOJ / BHAI TIKKA / BHAI BEEJ / BHAI PHONTA is a festival celebrated by Hindus all over India on the last day of the five-day-long Diwali festival. This is the second day of the bright fortnight or Shukla Paksha of the Hindu lunar month of Kartika in Bikram Sambat.The celebrations of this day are similar to the festival of Raksha Bandhan. On this day, sisters get gifts from brothers. BHAI DOOJ / BHAI TIKKA in entire Northern part of India, observed on the last day of the five-day Diwali festival. This is also the second day of the Vikrami Samvat New Year, the calendar followed in Northern India (including Kashmir), which starts from the lunar month of Kārtika. The first day of this New Year is observed as Govardhan Puja. Another name for the second day is Yamadwitheya or Yamadvitiya, after a legendary meeting between Yama the god of Death and his sister Yamuna (the famous river) on Dwitheya (the second day after new moon). According to a popular legend in Hindu mythology, after slaying the evil demon Narkasur, Lord Krishna visited his sister Subhadra who gave him a warm welcome with sweets and flowers. She also affectionately applied tilak on Krishna's forehead. Some believe this to be the origin of the festival.
On the day of the festival, sisters invite their brothers for a sumptuous meal often including their favorite dishes/sweets. The whole ceremony signifies the duty of a brother to protect his sister, as well as a sister's blessings for her brother. Carrying forward the ceremony in traditional style, sisters perform aarti for their brother and apply a red tikka on the brother's forehead. This tikka ceremony on the occasion of BHAI TIKKA signifies the sister's sincerest prayers for the long and happy life of her brother. In return brothers bless their sisters and treat them also with gifts or cash. BHAI TIKKA is a time for family reunions as all brothers and sisters in the family get together. Close relatives and friends are also invited to celebrate the BHAI TIKKA in many families.SOURCE--WIKIPEDIA.
