on the first day and Lakshmi Puja on the thirst day end with celebrating the bond between brother and sister on the last day It a festival very similar to Raksha Bandhan but unlike Rakhi no thread is tied on their hands Brothers vows to protect sisters while the sister prays for brother’s long life and well being It is celebrated on the second day after the new moon or Shukla Paksha in the Hindu lunar month of Kartik (falling most between months of October and November) The auspicious second day is also known as ‘dooj’ or ‘dwithiya’ thus giving it the name Bhai Dooj or Bhathru Dwithiya Celebrated in many parts of India and Nepal it is an important festival in Bengal Bihar and parts of Gujarat and Maharastra Bhai Dooj is also called as Bhau Beej (in Goa Maharashtra and Karnataka) Bhai Tika (in Nepal) Bhathru Dwithiya Bhau-deej Bhai Phota (in Bengal) and Ningol Chakuba (in Manipur) Origin and significance of the festival: There are two main stories that are believed to have given rise to this festival of celebrating the bond between brother and sister In several parts of India it is believed that Lord Krishna after killing Narakasur one of the asura kings went to meet his beloved sister Subhadra Subhadra welcomed him in the traditional way by performing aarti and putting a tilak on his forehead after his remarkable victory Many believe is the history behind the ceremony However in a parallel history the ritual is associated with Yamraj the god of death This day is also known as Yamadwitheya or Yamadvitiya According to Hindu Mythology it is said that on the second day after the new moon Yamraj visited his sister Yami (also known as Yamuna) The grand meeting was started with aarti and tilak ceremony followed by a sumptuous meal In return of all the love and grand gesture Yamraj had returned her sister a unique gift as a symbol of his love and care towards his sister At that day being happy by Yami’s care and affection Yamraj had declared that any brother who would visit his sister and receive tilak and aarti on the dwithiya of Sukla Paksha in the Kartik month should not fear death Like every Indian festival Bhai Dooj is no exception sweets and elaborate meals are part of the celebrations (Source: Thinkstock images) Another story behind the origin of Bhai Dooj says that when Mahavir the founder of Jainism attained nirvana and shunned all family ties his brother King Nandivardhan was extremely upset because he missed him and was comforted by his sister Sudarshana Many attribute this to the ceremony too It is believed that Yamraj and Yami were estranged twin children of Lord Surya but was driven out by their step-mother Chaya The meeting of Yamiraj and Yamuna on this day happened after prolonged period of several years and Yamraj was extremely touched by her love By the time they met Yamuna was married to a prince and Yamraj was welcomed in her husband’s house Thereby many believe traditionally this festival is applicable to married women only Apart from strengthening the bond it gave a chance for the brother to visit and check on the conditions of his sister at her husband’s place So traditionally brothers visit sister on this day and are treated with great regard along with sweets and gifts It is also believed that Yamraj’s promise to Yami about the longevity of life assured to brothers to receive love from their sister on this day is also significant Believing that Yamraj listens to sisters’ prayers and stay away from their brothers rewarding them long life In present-day world sisters both unmarried and married celebrate the occasion with much fanfare and galore and is incomplete with delicious meal and desserts Ceremony or Vidhi: The ceremony is marked by the sisters putting an auspicious tilak or a vermilion mark on the forehead of their brothers and performs an aarti of him by showing him the light of the holy flame as a mark of love and protection from evil forces Sisters in return get gifts goodies and blessings from their brothers The tilak ceremony however has many variations In Nepal seven colours are used to adorn the forehead of the brothers In Bengal sandal paste and kajal is used to put the tilak and is blessed with dhaan (paddy grain) and durba (grass) also signifying money or gifts are not needed for brother’s blessing Meals: During the tilak ceremony the brother is treated with many sweets and desserts which are followed by an elaborate meal at lunch In Maharashtra special dishes for the festival include the sweet called basundi poori or kheerni poori In Bengal a special snack glazed with sugary syrup called the khaja is essential to the festival No thali served to the brother during the tilak ceremony is complete with this The mahurat timings: The tilak ceremony can take place till dusk provided the tithi is still dwithiya However within the day there is a special time when it is extremely auspicious for the ceremony All timings are according to DrikPanchangcom In Delhi and Gurgaon: 1:09 pm to 3:20 pm In Mumbai: 1:29 pm to 3:45 pm In Allahabad: 12:52 pm to 3:04 pm In Kolkata: 12:26 pm to 02:41 pm In Patna: 12:39 pm to 2:51 pm With an end to

| Published: September 8 2017 4:53 pm The Atlanta-based company one of three major US credit bureaus said Thursday that “criminals” exploited a US website application to access files between mid-May and July of this year (Image Source: AP) Related News Credit monitoring company Equifax has been hit by a high-tech heist that exposed the Social Security numbers and other sensitive information about 143 million Americans Now the unwitting victims have to worry about the threat of having their identities stolen The Atlanta-based company one of three major US credit bureaus said Thursday that “criminals” exploited a US website application to access files between mid-May and July of this year The theft obtained consumers’ names Social Security numbers birth dates addresses and in some cases driver’s license numbers The purloined data can be enough for crooks to hijack the identities of people whose credentials were stolen through no fault of their own potentially wreaking havoc on their lives Equifax said its core credit-reporting databases don’t appear to have been breached “On a scale of one to 10 this is a 10 in terms of potential identity theft” said Gartner security analyst Avivah Litan “Credit bureaus keep so much data about us that affects almost everything we do” Lenders rely on the information collected by the credit bureaus to help them decide whether to approve financing for homes cars and credit cards Credit checks are even sometimes done by employers when deciding whom to hire for a job Equifax discovered the hack July 29 but waited until Thursday to warn consumers The Atlanta-based company declined to comment on that delay or anything else beyond its published statement It’s not unusual for US authorities to ask a company hit in a major hack to delay public notice so that investigators can pursue the perpetrators The company established a website and a helpline where consumers can check if any of their information had been stolen Experian is also offering free credit monitoring to all US consumers for a year “This is clearly a disappointing event for our company and one that strikes at the heart of who we are and what we do” Equifax CEO Richard Smith said in a statement “I apologize to consumers and our business customers for the concern and frustration this causes” This isn’t the biggest data breach in history That indignity still belongs to Yahoo which was targeted in at least two separate digital burglaries that affected more than 1 billion of its users’ accounts throughout the world But no Social Security numbers or drivers’ license information were disclosed in the Yahoo break-in Equifax’s security lapse could be the largest theft involving Social Security numbers one of the most common methods used to confirm a person’s identity in the US It eclipses a 2015 hack at health insurer Anthem Inc that involved the Social Security numbers of about 80 million people Any data breach threatens to tarnish a company’s reputation but it is especially mortifying for Equifax whose entire business revolves around providing a clear financial profile of consumers that lenders and other businesses can trust “This really undermines their credibility” Litan said It also could undermine the integrity of the information stockpiled by two other major credit bureaus Experian and TransUnion since they hold virtually all the data that Equifax does Litan said Equifax’s stock dropped 13 percent to $12410 in extended trading after its announcement of the breach Three Equifax executives sold shares worth a combined $18 million just a few days after the company discovered it had been hacked according to documents filed with securities regulators The sales executed on August 1 and August 2 were made by: John Gamble Equifax’s chief financial officer; Rodolfo Ploder Equifax’s president of workforce solutions; and Joseph Loughran Equifax’s president of US information solutions Bloomberg News first reported the divestitures In a subsequent statement Equifax said the three executives “had no knowledge that an intrusion had occurred at the time they sold their shares” The potential aftershocks of the Equifax breach should make it clear that Social Security numbers are becoming an unreliable way to verify a person’s identity Nathaniel Gleicher the former director of cybersecurity policy in the White House during the Obama administration said in an email statement “This breach might just have put the nail in the coffin of the idea that we can use personal identifiers like Social Security numbers as security factors” wrote Gleicher who now oversees cybersecurity strategy for computer security firm Illumio In addition to the personal information stolen in its breach Equifax said the credit card numbers for about 209000 US consumers were also taken as were “certain dispute documents” containing personal information for approximately 182000 US individuals Equifax warned that hackers also may have some “limited personal information” about British and Canadian residents The company doesn’t believe that consumers from any other countries were affected For all the latest Technology News download Indian Express
