11:23 AM, the auspicious time for Bhaitika today


KATHMANDU:
Sisters throughout the country offer ‘Tika’ to their brothers today wishing them happiness, long life and prosperity on the occasion of Bhaitika, the last day of 5-day-long Yem Panchak Tihar.

The auspicious hour today for offering the Tika begins at 11:23 am and can be held until sunset today, according to the National Calendar Determination Committee.

On this day of the Tihar festival, brothers who have sisters are seated at a specially anointed place around which a trail of mustard oil is drawn. The sisters then offer the brothers Tika and garlands of ‘Dubo’ and ‘Makhamali’.

The occasion commemorates a legendary event in which a sister won a boon from “Yama”, the deity of death that her brother would not die until the mustard oil dried up and the garland of ‘Dubo’ and ‘Makhamali’ faded.
Brothers also offer their sisters Tika in return, wish them happiness and good luck, and give them presents.
