Pongal, a harvest festival, is predominantly celebrated in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu. This year, Pongal is being celebrated from January 15 to January 18. The four days of festivities begin with 'Bhogi' followed by 'Thai Pongal', 'Mattu Pongal' and 'Kaanum Pongal'. Each day has its own significance and is celebrated in a particular way.
Pongal is basically a thanksgiving for the year's harvest. A dish is prepared with rice, milk, jaggery, ghee, raisins, cashews and offered to the Sun God. This dish is known as 'Pongal'. Sugarcane sticks, bananas and coconuts are also offered. Rangolis and kolams are created in all the houses. On the last day, women perform a special ritual for the well-being of the brother.
While the people in South India celebrate Pongal, Assam celebrates Bihu while the other part of India is engulfed in the festivities of Makar Sankranti and Lohri.
Spread love and peace on this Pongal with these messages and wishes.
