Encompassing ied expressions of life for example cleanliness, plants and animals, feast, harvest, and relationship bonds, Pongal festival is indeed a time to go for big celebrations like decorating the cows, processions and stunning rangolis. Well, Pongal contains huge series of merriment rolled into one huge fiesta and thus pay gratitude to the Mother Nature, God, Earth and their Cattle for some miraculous harvest like rice, sugarcane, turmeric, and cereals.

Bhogi Pongal 15th January followed by Surya is the first and the foremost festivity that takes place on the last day of Tamil month. Pongal is celebrated on the next day. It is the only day when Chakkara Pongal 18th January, a yummy delight of harvest rice is prepared with jaggery, cashew nuts and ghee and is then offered to the Sun God. Subsequently, on the third day of Mattu Pongal16th January, which is typically committed to the Cattle when cows are bathed and decked out with multi-hued flowers and beads.
