The Bengalis call it Poush Sankranti, the Tamilians call it Pongal, and the Assamese call it Bihu!
Even though different parts of India have different names for Makar Sankranti, the feeling of love and respect for this festivity is the same. We consider it as the holiest festival because of the immense significance it holds in our lives.
Farmers embark the new harvest season with this fiesta called Lohri in Punjab and other parts of Northern India. They celebrate it with so much pomp that it soothes the heart, eyes, and mind. While the show of dancing and singing around the Lohri bonfire happens in the evening, they pay homage to and commemorate Suryadevta in the morning.
Many celebrate this auspicious day to mark the changeover when days start becoming lengthier than nights.
India Imprints too loves celebrating Makar Sankranti, distributing til-gurh ladoos to all our patrons, and sharing our favourite Sankranti stories over bonfire.
