Bhatru Dwitiya

Bhatru Dwitiya is a famous tradition celebrated on the second day after Deepavali. In 2020, Bhatru Dwitiya date is November 16.

This day is celebrated as Bhai Dooj or Bhau Beej in Maharashtra, Gujarat, and other North Indian states, and as Bhai Phonta in Bengal and Assam and as Bhai Tika in Nepal.

On this day, sisters offer meals with special recipes to brothers and in return brothers offer gold, clothes, and other material that are symbols of long-lasting sindhur. It is believed on this day; Lord Yama visits his sister Yamuna and eats meals at her abode.

Yama Puja is also an auspicious ritual to perform on Bhatru Dwitiya. Sodari Tritya is observed on the next day.

Bhatru Dwitiya marks the end of 5-day Deepavali festival in South India.
