The smell of incense and flowers greeted everyone who visited the Library on the 13th of January 2010 as all of us got together to celebrate the harvest festival of Tamil Nadu: Pongal. A big thank you to all the mothers who attended the function and took so much trouble to dress their kids in elegant ethnic wear. The kids eagerly waited for the pot to boil over and equally relished the sweet pongal and snacks that we served. In the short art session that followed, several kids captured the essence of the celebration as they drew the sun, sugarcane and lamps to capture the significance of the festival that gives thanks to the Sun. Enjoy the pictures!
