Pongal is a harvest festival held each year in southern India. It takes place over a period of four days during the month of January. With many activities, foods, and events, …it is a popular event among citizens and travelers alike. It also marks the end of the busy harvest season, and is a time for people to give thanks to nature for the gifts of harvest and farming, which is one of the most economically important occupations in the country. This event is celebrated in many cities and communities, and travelers to the region will find many opportunities to engage in the ceremony.This event has been celebrated nationally since the times when people began farming and gathering food. In the language of Tamil, its name means "to boil," and it is one of the most important Hindu traditions. The event is unique because it is the only national affair that is celebrated in coordination with the solar calendar. Therefore, its dates vary slightly from year to year, but it generally begins in the middle of January. There is a significant amount of astronomical importance associated with this day, as it marks the beginning of the Uttarayana solar phase, which is when the sun begins a semi-annual northward movement through the sky.This event officially brings the nation's farming season to an end. In addition to providing cause for celebration, it gives farmers a break from their hectic routines. In the cities, Hindus gather outside temples to ring bells and beat drums. In smaller villages, where many farmers are from, community potlucks are held. Throughout the season, town citizens store extra rice, which is prepared in a variety of dishes for this occasion. In a tribute to the gods of agriculture, which are still honored today, foods such as rice, vegetables, and sugarcane are offered as a gesture of appreciation. During this time, people offer wishes to one another for prosperity, and seek blessings from the gods for a fruitful, plentiful year of crops and produce.Bhogi is the first day of this event. Traditionally, people make beautiful Kolams, which are elaborate paintings made from rice powder, and place them in front of their homes. These designs are often colorful and exotic, and their centerpieces are often comprised of yellow pumpkin flowers set in cow-dung balls. Families gather to mark the start of the celebration, which commences with a large meal of vegetables, grains, and other items accrued during the season. Offerings are made to Lord Indra, the king of deities and God of the Cloud and Rains, in the hopes that he will provide a plentiful harvest. Bhogi also marks the start of the New Year in the Malayalam calendar, which is ushered in by large communal bonfires.The second day is called Surya Pongal. It honors the Sun God, Lord Sundareshwar. On this day, the Sun God is said to have given life to a stone elephant in the Madurai temple, which in turn brought the entire animal species to life. In thanks, Hindus give the god offerings of food. In tribute, a special rice dish called Sarkkarai is prepared in traditional clay pots. It is then served to Sundareshwar along with sugarcane sticks.Mattu is the third day of celebration, and pays tribute to the Lord Ganesha and Goddess Parvati. Agriculturally, it is dedicated to livestock, and is a way for cowherds, ranchers, and shepherds to give recognition to the hard work performed by their cows and bulls. To honor their steeds, farmers paint the animals' horns, fasten tinkling bells around their necks, and cover their heads with shining metal caps. City fairgrounds are transformed into sporting venues, and in many areas, young men run with bulls. Cattle races and other livestock competitions are also included in the festivities.Kaanum brings the event to a close. On Kaanum, families often gather at the homes of grandparents and older family members. It is a time for the young to pay their respects to elders. In return, elders thank them by giving small sums of money. A popular custom on this day is for people to leave out grains of rice on banana leaves for birds to take. The idea behind this tradition is that birds, historically seen as messengers, will spread the seeds of harvest and life.Pongal is historically one of the most important holidays in the fertile agricultural regions of southern India. It marks the end of the busy farming season, and also coincides with the start of the New Year. Although a Hindu tradition, this festival is celebrated by citizens of all faiths. If you are travelling to Asia during this time, you can find many events to attend in larger cities, such as bull runs, cattle races, and potluck dinners. Many farmers bring their best products and crops to sell at community farmer's markets, along with prepared foods made from grains and other harvested crops.
