"May joy , Prosperity and good fortune overflow in abundance this pongal and throughout the year."
Today is Surya Pongal, most important day in the pongal celebrations . Salutations are given to the Sun for the harvest. I tilted the pot to face the sun , we do cook our pongal with the pot slightly tilted east wards.Even before I completed the pot I was sure I would use Susan's beehive scrolls to show pongal overflowing out of the pot.
I only planned the pot but my sons felt , it would not be complete without the paddy sheaf and the sugarcane.Lot of colours and glitters are a part of every Indian festival.
This is the kolam I made yesterday in front of my house for bhogi , and I also quilled it for a friend as my pongal gift.
This is the picture of the kolam from the book .
Thanks for stopping by, A very happy pongal to everyone..
