The cultural significance of Bhai Dooj, reflects the tradition of Hindu Society. It is celebrated in parts of India and each one of the region name the festival differently. But the common underlying theme is offering prayer for the long and healthy life of brother.

When Is Bhai Dooj
Bhai Dooj falls immediately after the 2nd day of Diwali. Therefore, the celebration can be performed on the same decorated platform. Rangolis of geometric design are drawn on the floor and shimmered with lighting candles and diyas. Many believe to perform the rituals of Bhai Dooj in the holy room (Puja Ghar) dedicated to praying God and Goddess.

On the most awaited day of Bhai Dooj, sisters make arrangement for smearing their brother's forehead with Bhai Dooj tikka. They arrange a puja thali, holding sandal wood paste, rice grains, Dubya(a green herb) and red vermillion(roli). Sisters offer their brothers sit on the new Asana and bless them with rice grains, Dubya and Teeka, following chanting the holy mantra of saving their dearest brothers from evil shadows. After performing Aarti before the Bhaiyas, they touch feet and complete the ritual. Interestingly, a brother need to give gift, if not big, at least a penny to his sister. This symbolizes a strong emotional touch between the two.
