Bhaiya Dooj

Bhaiya Dooj is the last day of the Diwali celebrations. The term Bhaiya means brother and the term Dooj refers to the second day after Amavasya. Thus Bhaiya Dooj is celebrated following Diwali. The festival is based on a legend in which a sister saved her brother out of deadly dangers by doing great sacrifices.

The lovely siblings

Once upon a time, a brother and sister lived. The sister got married and left for her in-law’s family. There was a thick forest separating their two villages and hence the sister could never visit her family. At a point of time, the brother risked his life through the forest and reached his sister’s home. They both had a wonderful meet after a long time. While returning, the brother told his sister he might not be alive after leaving her.

Dangers and escape

In the forest, a tiger, snake and gypsies wanted to kill him, but spared him when he gave a word that he would become their prey while returning after meeting his sister. Hearing this, the sister joined him on the way back. She offered milk to the snake and meat to the tiger which spared the life of his brother. But some gypsies said they would spare his life only if she acted as though she turned mad and troubled his brother.

The sister’s sacrifice

In order to save her brother, the sister turned mad and abused him with harsh and foul words. At the same time, she saved him from dangers and got him married. The sister did not mind when the whole village condemned her acts. Once the gypsies left her brother, the sister revealed the truth to the villagers and explained why she acted mad. The villagers praised her sacrifices and since then the event came to be celebrated as Bhaiya Dooj.
