Hey everyone, your best friend Sara here!
Deepavali came and lit up our lives, just when we needed it most.
Close on its heels, many Indians celebrate the special bond that siblings share, in the festival of Bhai Dooj.
Today, 9 year old Srija Bhadra from Kolkata shares a poem about why this festival is so special.
Another fresh bhai dooj is here
Another year to live,
To banish, worry, doubt and fear
To love and laugh and give.
A brother faces a sister’s challenges with
Determination and strength.
A sister thanks the lord,
To give her such a brother.
A brother holds her sister’s hand as a kid,
Through thick and thin.
Picks up the sisters in the time of trouble,
And cheers when a sister wins.
Sometimes they fight, sometimes they bicker
A sister wants to know her brother.
No matter who is strong and bigger,
But every brother and sister discover-
Their love in the festival of Bhai Dooj
