Smokeless Bhogi this year

Smokeless Bhogi this year and Happy Pongal

Thanks to the incessant hardwork of Tamil Nadu Pollution  Control Board, this year Bhogi had been relatively less polluting. This is purely due to the increased awareness among the public on the various effects of burning harmful non-biodegradable contents  on the eco system.
The Pongal celebrations too have been calm and peaceful. Pongal indicates a lot of different and indepth meaning in different parts of India.
  1. Harvest Festival in Tamil Nadu and thanksgiving to various bullock and birds that have helped the farmers in getting a bountiful harvest.
  2. Starting of Uttrayanam and end of Dakshiyananam.
  3. Makara Sankrama Pooja at Sabarimala
  4. Ardh Kumbh Mela in Triveni Sangamam in Allahabad
Let us wish each other Happy Makara Sankranthi or Happy Pongal and let us pray God for prosperous and Happy New Year 2007.
