Bhai Tika is one of the most important days of the second biggest festival in Nepal. Bhai Tika is a tradition in which a sister worships their brothers and gets a gift from them in return. Sisters apply tika to the forehead of their brothers to thank them for all their love and support and to protect them from the bad.

Sisters put 7 different colors of tika on their brothers, also known as saptarangi tika. Along with the tika, the brothers are also offered garlands of flowers and makhamali mala. Not only that, but sisters also offer sweets and fruits, chocolates, and masala poka and traditionally worship them. Then, sisters get gifts from their brothers; some get money, and some get gifts.

The Newah's from Kathmandu celebrate in the same way, except that they make mandalas and celebrate most traditionally.
