Lohri, Makar Sankranti, and Pongal are all harvest festivals that are celebrated between 12-15 January. Though the way they are celebrated and the story behind them may differ, they serve a common purpose –of rejoicing in the harvest of the season and thanking almighty for his blessings and asking for a prosperous financial year ahead. They are just different names of a festival. Well, in a country like India, where cultural diversity units the nation, these festivals are an example of how we Indians can turn a harvest season into a festive environment throughout our country. These festivals also signify Indian values of thanking nature for everything that it has bestowed upon us. Offering nature the products we obtain from its services before we consume them ourselves is a reflection of our respect towards our resources. The festivity and positivity that these festivals shower at the very beginning of the year is stunning and exquisite.
