The final day of Diwali celebrations is known as Yama Dvitiya, or Yam Dwitiya - a symbol of love between brothers and sisters. The day is observed as Bhai Dhooj or Bhau Bij or Bhai Beej in North India. Yama Dvitiya is the name used popularly in South India, especially in Karnataka. In Maharashtra, the day is known as Bhai Tika. The legend of Yam Dwitiya is associated with Lord Yama, the Hindu god of Death, visiting his sister Yami.Legend has it that Yamaraj, the God of Death, visited his sister Yami on this day after Diwali. Yami welcomed her brother with garlands and by applying the auspicious tilak on his forehead. She also served him his favorite dishes. They also exchanged gifts. Yamraj is believed to have said to Yami that who receives tilak from his sister will have to never suffer hell. Since then Yama Dvitiya is observed as a symbol of love between brothers and sisters. It is dedicated to Lord Yama
