Pongal celebrated by different communities

Communal harmony, peace and brotherhood can be best witnessed during the celebration of different festivals in our incredible land. The scene was no different during Pongal celebrations, when different communities came together to celebrate the winter harvest. Pongal marks the beginning of Uttarayana, the sun's movement northward for a six-month period, which is considered auspicious. Though the festival is mainly celebrated in South India, it is equally liked by North Indians as well. Pongal is a four-day-long harvest festival celebrated in Tamil Nadu, which falls in the month of Thai when crops like rice, sugarcane, turmeric etc. are harvested.
