Pongal is the harvest festival of South India. This year 2014, Pongal festival will fall on January 14 and will last up to January 17. The main event of the festival will be on January 15th.  Pongal festival is one of the greatest festivals in India. In fact, it is the only harvest festival that thanks cattles for helping people in farming.

While other harvest festivals feature killing cattle as tradition, people in Tamil Nadu do otherwise. The consider Pongal festival as the day where they can express their gratitude to their farm best friend, their cattle. They give them a bath, decorate them with garlands and feed them with rice, curry and payasam to show their gratitude.

Pongal festival is just a few days to go so let me express my best Pongal wishes and pongal greetings to all Tamil Nadu who are about ready to celebrate this auspicious day.

My First Pongal Memory

Mattu-PongalI was living in a farming village at pondicherry, while working in Pondicherry. I heard lot of noise at one morning and got up from the bed. When I came out and checked it out, I have seen a lot of workers running behind cattles with garlands. At first, I thought they are conducting the marriage of cows and bulls. But I could not see any cow bride there. Finally, the workers caught all the bulls and decorated them all with garlands. Then the Jamindar (land lord) came out with lot of rice and dishes. They put banana leaves in front of each bull and put rice, sambar and payasam and given to bulls. My neighbor explained me that this is mattu pongal traditions and I realized what a rich culture is Tamils.
