Right after New Year’s eve, most of us start thinking of upcoming festivals – a chance to make merry and enjoy . As you know, Makar Sankranti is the first festival of the year.
Makar Sankranti is an important festival of the Hindus. The festival Makara Sankranti is a harvest festival and quite popular in the states of Maharashtra, Gujerat , Karnataka, Andhra & Tamilnadu and celebrated mid-January every year.
This is the day when the Sun transitions from winter to Spring. In Northern India too, Lohri is celebrated with great Pomp. The day before Sankranti is called Bhogi and this is when people discard old stuff and habits and concentrate on new things causing change or transformation. Now isn’t that a fab way to start the year?
