On the day of Vijaya Dashami, which is celebrated as the Dashain Tika day in Nepal, women prepare a mixture of rice, yogurt and vermillion called the Tika. Elders in the family, put this tika on the forehead of younger relatives along with the jamara collected from the kalasha as blessings.
The elders also give dakshina or gift to the younger ones in the family. This continues for five days starting from the day of Vijaya Dashami during which friends and family members visit each other and exchange gifts and greetings.
