PONGAL- South Indian thanksgiving harvest festival


PONGAL is celebrated on first tamil month "Thai".On that special festival, people offer pongal(prepared  with first grain) in a banana leaf to the Sun God in TamilNadu and convey their thanks to the farmers...

Iam so inspired with this Pongal Golu which i found from a site in 2007...an innovative decoration of Navarathri Golu with pongal...The floor decoration (kolam) is on a small portable blackboard. The design is a pongal pot created with various dried beans, including kidney beans, black beans,green lentils and dried rice flakes....
