On the day of Bhai Dooj or Bhai Phonta festival, sisters invite their brothers for a sumptuous meal often including their favourite sweets. 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 duty of a brother to protect his sister, as well as a sister's blessings for her brother.
