Bankura: Bhai Dooj is a Hindu festival which celebrates the love between a brother and sister. On the occasion of Bhai Dooj, women pray to the Gods for long and prosperous lives for their brothers. It is celebrated two days after Diwali. This year, Bhai Dooj will be celebrated on November 9.
Earlier on Thursday, long lines of buyers were observed near sweet shops . The same picture was found everywhere, including the city’s Bhairobsthan More, Machantala, Subhash Road, Katjuridanga.
To avoid the crowd, many people are buying sweets two days earlier. Many buyers have claimed that they did not get sweets on Bhaidooj as their choices, that is why they were buying sweets in advance. Pallavi Mandal, who bought sweets for Bhaidooj said, “To avoid the crowd, and to buy brother’s favorite sweets, I went to shop on Thursday.”
Joydev Chakrborty, a sweet seller from Bankura city said, The buyers are much more than previous year. Malai and chocolate sweets are the highest demand on that Bhaidooj. Normally, people used to buy dry sweets, but this time, people are showing interest in purchasing Rosogolla and Langcha.
Along with the main Bankura town, same picture was seen in the parts of Bankura sub-urbans area. Along with Rosogolla, Malaichaki, Kachagolla, Khirkodom and Langcha are in high demand.
