Bhai Dooj is a special Hindu festival that celebrates the bond of love between brother and sister, just like Raksha Bandhan. It is also called Bhau-Beej, Bhai Tika or Bhai Phonta. Bhai dooj culminates the 5-day Diwali festival, which starts with Dhateras, followed by Choti Diwali, Lakshmi Pooja, Govardhan Pooja and then Bhaiya Dooj. On Bhai Dooj, sisters invite their brothers home and apply 'teeka' or 'tilak' on their foreheads, and pray for their long life. These days, sisters also go to brother' place and apply the tilak. Both the brother and sister wear festive clothes and prepare dishes. The sisters also get gifts for their brothers. Brothers also present gifts to their sisters and pray for their well-being. The festival is called Bhau Beej among Gujarati, Marathi and Konkani-speaking communities, Bhai Phonta among Bengalis and Bhai Teeka in Nepal.
