Pongal Celebrations at the Library!

Dear Friends,

The 14th of January every year is celebrated as Pongal all over Tamil Nadu. Its a festival that gives thanks for a bountiful harvest and is celebrated with great colour and pomp.

At Gulmohar Days we do not miss any celebration! So lets give the kids a taste of tradition. Lets get together on Wednesday, the 13th of January, at 3.45 pm, to understand the significance of Pongal, decorate the Library with kolam or rangoli, give thanks to the Sun for blessing us with life and watch the pot boil over as we shout Pongal-o-pongal! And of course, feast on some sweet pongal as well!
