Bhai Phonta

In India, there are two "brothers' days" – one in Rakhi Purnima and one in Bhai Dooj (Bengalis call it Bhai Phonta).

This is the day sisters invite brothers for a sumptuous meal and can expect some gifts from their brothers.

Now with brothers and sisters spread all over the world the meals and gifts as well as the "phonta" (a dot of curd and sandalwood which the sister puts on the forehead of her brother for his long and prosperous life) would perhaps have to be exchanged over the net!

Enjoy and Celebrate your Bangaliana!
