On this day sisters shower their love on their brothers. They put an auspicious 'tilak' on the forehead of their brothers and perform an 'aarti' of him and pray to god to protect their brothers from all wicked and evil forces. Sisters are gifted with gifts, goodies and blessings from their brothers. The brothers also take pledge to protect their sisters from all evils.
