Pongal is a four-day-long harvest festival celebrated in the country’s southern state of Tamil Nadu. It usually falls in the month of January when crops like rice, turmeric and sugarcane are ready to be harvested. This year, Pongal will be celebrated from 14 to 17 January.
The word ‘pongal’ means ‘spilling over’. Hence, on this festival, people follow a tradition of boiling the rice in an earthen pot till it overflows. Pongal is also referred to as ‘Thai Pongal’ in Tamil Nadu. Farmers in the state celebrate by worshiping the sun which is believed to provide them with the energy to grow their crops.
