Neglected elder wish you "HAPPY PONGAL"
CHHASE and the beneficiaries wish you and your family "A HAPPY PONGAL " !! Pongal is mainly celebrated to convey appreciation to the Sun God for a successful harvest.
The harvest festival is celebrated over four days with each day having a different ritual. Here is how Pongal is celebrated in Tamil Nadu. The first day of Pongal is celebrated by paying respect to the rain gods who are responsible in ensuring a good crop year.
The Pongal festival, of all the festivals being celebrated throughout Tamil Nadu today by the Hindu population, has special significance for two reasons. First, it is the harvest festival of the Tamil state and the neighbouring south Indian states. It is being celebrated from time immemorial; it is a thanks giving festival - the farmers thank the life-giving sun and their cattle; others thank the Mother Nature and the farmers for producing a bountiful crop and keeping us all alive. The festival is observed annually exactly on the same day (first day of the month of Thai - co-eval with the 14th or the 15th of January of the western Gregarian Calendar. The Tamils follow the solar calendar. Originally, Tamil New Year Day was celebrated on the Pongal Day and not on the first day of the month of Chithirai. This day was celebrated as the beginning of the ilavenil season ( the spring festival ).
