The festival of lights, Diwali, rounds off with Bhai Dooj. Observed on the second lunar day of Shukla Paksha in the Vikram Samvat Hindu calendar, the day sees sisters praying for a long and prosperous life for their brothers, with the siblings exchanging gifts as well.
There are several stories behind Bhai Dooj. One talks about how Lord Krishna blessed Subhadra after she had invited him to celebrate his victory over Narakasur, while a second one deals with Yamraj, the God of Death, visited his sister Yami or Yamuna.
And even though the origins of the festival may be steeped in legends and myths, there is no denying the fact that the eternal love shared between a brother and sister rivals many other forms of affections.
