Happy Pongal and makara sankaranti to all !!!

Recommended Posts

Happy Pongal. Makara  Sankranthi, Uttarayan, Lohri. Same festival, different names and rituals. In Marathi, they say, “Tilgul ghya god god bola”,. In Kannada, we say, “YeL tindu olle maathadu”. “Eat sesame and talk well about all” roughly translated. 

khara pongal or sakkara pongal? I like khara better.

Dumb Hindians, it is Makara in Sanskrit, Tamil, Kannada. And it is not Kannad, Keral. :wall:  Else we will start calling it Haryan instead of Haryana. Or Madh Pradesh, Odish

I just feel lucky that no one from the wrong side of the Vindhyas thought the "Happy" in ("Happy Pongal") was someone's name.
