When was Bhai Dooj in 2014?
India, the land of vibrant festivities celebrate the unconditional love between a brother and a sister with utmost grandeur and pomp. Bhai Dooj is observed on the ‘Dwitiya Tithi’ after New Moon on which Diwali is observed. ‘Bhai Dooj’ is also called ‘Yama Dwitiya’ as it is believed that ‘Yamaraj’, the Lord of Death visits his sister ‘Yamuna’ on this day. People of Hindu religion believe that a brother will be protected from all the miseries if he receives a ‘Tika’ from his sister on this auspicious day. There is also a popular mythological story about the significance of this propitious occasion. Lord Shri Krishna was welcomed by his sister, Subhadra on this day as he returned home after killing demon ‘Narakasur’.
The day also holds special significance in ‘Jainism’. After ‘Mahavir’, the founder of Jainism attained ‘Nirvana’, his distressed brother ‘Nandivardhan’ was comforted by their sister, ‘Sudarshana’. Sisters observe the sacred festival by putting vermillion or ‘Chandan’ (Sandalwood Paste) ‘tilak’ on the forehead of their brothers. The sisters also perform ‘Aarti’ of their brothers by showing the holy flame symbolising protection from all the evils. Bhai Dooj is celebrated on the second lunar day of Shukla Paksha (bright fortnight) in the Vikram Samvat Hindu calendar month of Kartika. Bengalis observe this day as ‘Bhai Phota’ with the sisters praying to the Almighty for the wellbeing of their brothers.
