What is the importance of Bhai Dooj?

After crusade all the odds of negativity and purifying it with love and care, sisters held us together to maintain the bond of brotherly-sisterly love glorified with such grandeur as in India. Hindus celebrate this special relationship twice each year, with the festivals of Raksha Bandhan and Bhai Dooj.
According to one legend, on this day, Lord Krishna, once when the Narakasura demon, goes to his sister Subhadra who welcomes him with the holy lamp, flowers, and sweets and puts the holy protecting spot on her brother's forehead. Yet another story behind the origin of Bhai Dooj says that when Mahavir, the founder of Jainism, attained nirvana, his brother King Nandivardhan was distressed because he lost him and was comfortable by his sister Sudarshana.
Since then, ladies are revered throughout Bhai Dooj. Hindu culture has manifested the greatness and glory of this relationship in several forms, out of that Bhai Dooj festival is a vital form. This auspicious occasion additionally reveals the importance of siblings in someone's life.
