According to mythology, Yamraj, the God of Death visited his sister Yami or Yamuna. He was welcomed by his sister with ‘tilak’. Moved by his sister’s love, Yamraj presented her with a significant gift of love and affection. The God of Death also declared that any brother who would receive a ‘tilak’ from his sister on this day, should never be afraid of death. On receiving my tilak from my sister, I gifted her with face masks and I’m less afraid of death, due to Covid-19.
