Bhatri Ditya

Bhatri Ditya Occasion

A day dedicated to the pious relationship shared between a brother and his lovely sister, Bhatri Ditya is a special festive occasion for a family. It is a day when a sister expresses her love and pray for the well being of her brother. On this day, all sisters and brothers in a Hindu household commit to protect each other and maintain this special relationship for rest of their life.

Bhatri Ditya is celebrated by sisters wishing a long life for the brothers and placed Tika on Brothers' forehead signifying placement of a barrier against any undesirable occurrences. Observed in Kartik on Shukl Ditya, the festival of Bhatri Ditya, aims to establish and maintain mutual love between the brother and the sister. On this day, the sisters worship berry trees and wish welfare for their brothers.

Bhatri Ditya being being the last day of Diwali celebration, Hindus observe this day with full zest and spirit. Except in Bihar, where Chath festival is still to be celebrated, for many, this is the last major festival. Thus, the festive mood of Bhatri Ditya fills the air with great excitement, joy and happiness.
