Happy Pongal

The Tamil festival of Thai Pongal is a thanks giving ceremony in which the farmers celebrate the event to thank the spirits of nature spirit, the Sun and the farm animals for their assistance in providing a successful harvest. The rest of the people celebrate the festival to pay their thanks to the farmers for the production of food. Overall, it is a festival to encourage social cohesiveness and unite people by bringing them together in a common function.

  2. Maha is joining me in Wishing Every One Happy Thai Pongal – the day on which The Sun is expected to move towards the north according astrological calculations.

    According to the Tamil Saying ” Thaiyum Pirakka Vali Pirakkum ” let us PRAY TO THE ALMIGHTY FOR HELP TO PAVE THE WAY TO GET THE PANDEMIC UNDER COMPLETE CONTROL WITH ALL OUR PREVENTIVE MEASURES AND THE SPEED WITH WHICH PEOPLE ARE GETTING VACCINATED.
