Diwali is a festival Indians celebrate with great gusto. But the celebrations don’t end with just Diwali. Two days after Diwali comes the festival of Bhai Dooj, which is a celebration of the bond between a brother and sister.
The celebrations of this day are similar to the festival of Raksha Bandhan. On Bhaiya Dooj, sisters pray for their brothers to have long and happy lives. Sisters perform aarti for their brother and apply a red tika on the brother’s forehead. This tika ceremony on the occasion of Bhai Dooj signifies the sister’s sincerest prayers for the long and happy life of her brother and treat them with gifts. In return, brothers bless their sisters and may treat them also with gifts or cash.
This year bhai dooj 2018 will be celebrated on Friday, November 9.
Here’s a list of heartfelt messages, wishes and greetings you can share with your siblings on the auspicious occasion of Bhai Dooj
* You can share your pain;
You can share your fears;
And you can share your happiness
Thanks for being a very understanding sister!
Happy Bhaiya Dooj!
* You were always my best friend,
Looking out for me and making sure
The path I traveled on was smooth.
Even if I searched the world over,
There cannot be a better brother than you.
Happy Bhai Dooj!
* Like the love of Lord Krishna for his sister Subhadra, all brother should love their sister and like the blessings of Subhadra for his brother Krishna, all sisters should always pray for their Brothers.
Happy Bhai Dooj!
* Behen chahe bhai ka pyaar,
Nahin chahiye usse koi mehenga uphar,
Rishta yeh pyara rahe sadiyon tak atut,
Mere pyare bhaiya ko mubarak ho Bhai Dooj
* Partner in all crime,
My co-passenger in all journeys,
My shoulder to cry,
My person to hug,
My solution to all problems,
You have been a pain in those growing years,
And laughter during heart-breaks.
With miles, apart here’s wishing you
A very Happy Bhai Dooj!
