Welcoming Makar Sankranti/Pongal: The Harvest Festival

Makar Sankranti and Pongal mark the transition of the sun into the zodiac sign of Makara (Capricorn), heralding the arrival of spring in India. Celebrated with much fervor across the country, these festivals resonate with thanksgiving and joy as people express gratitude for a bountiful harvest. People fly kites, prepare traditional sweets like ‘Pongal’ or ‘Til Laddu,’ and gather with family and friends to enjoy the seasonal transition. It's a time of new beginnings and vibrant celebrations — a moment to cherish the rewards of hard work and nature's bounty.
