Dedicated to the deity Surya (sun), Makar Sankranti or Sankranti is a Hindu festival celebrated all across the Indian subcontinent with great optimism. It is the day on which the people of India and Nepal celebrate their harvest with a lot of fervour.
As a part of the festivities, people fly kites and eat khichdi made at home from the new produce. There is a different expression of happiness, satisfaction and hope on the faces around.
The fascinating season of flying kites is finally here. Colourful kites, til and ghee sweets, and all shouting in unison “Wo kaati!” Yes you guessed it right. I’m talking about one of the most cheerful Indian festivals, Makar Sankranti.
The festival itself is so cheerful and uplifting but there is one thing that enhances every occasion just like the cherry on the cake. Yes, the songs. And what can better go with a regional festival than regional songs?
