Hey everyone! The colorful, exciting festival of harvest, Sankranti, is almost here. What are your plans for this festive occasion, celebrated across most parts of India?

Makar Sankranti, falling on January 14th  this year, is a celebration of thanksgiving for the harvest and a day of joyful festivities for the gifts received over the year. In North India (Prayag), thousands of devout pilgrims line up to bathe at the confluence of the three holy rivers – Ganga, Yamuna and Saraswati (Triveni Sangam). In the South India, devotees throng to the Sabarimala Temple to get a glimpse of the Makara Jyoti.

Families all over the country clean their homes and sanctify them. In Tamil Nadu rice is cooked in milk till the milk overflows. This is called ‘Pongal’. The overflowing milk symbolizes the desire to fill their homes to the brim with wealth.
