Wishing all a very happy Makar Sankranti/Uttarayan

Posted by Upasana Jain on January 14th, 2010

"Tan mein masti,
mann mein umang,
chalo akash mein dale rang,
ho jaye sab sang-sang,
Udaye PATANG! "

Makar Sankranti is one the most auspicious days for the hindus. Sankaranti means transmigration of Sun from one Rashi (Zodiac in Indian astrology) to the other. Makar Sankranti is celebrated in the hindu calender month of Megha. After the day of Sankranti, the days start becoming longer and warmer and thus the chills of the winter declines.

It is known by different names in different states of the our country, here are few of them:

Makar Sankranti – Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Jharkhand, West Bengal, Orissa, Manipur, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Goa.
Uttarayan – Gujrat, Uttaranchal and Rajasthan
Lohri – Himachal Pradesh, Punjab
Pongal – Tamilnadu

People in India celebrate Sankranti in myriad cultrual forms, with great devotion. People take a dip in places like Ganga Sagar and Prayag and pray to Sun God(Surya). It is celebrated with pomp in southern parts of India as Pongal and in Punjab as Lohri and Maghi. In the western Indian state of Gujarat, the celebrations are even bigger. People offer thousands of their colorful oblations to the Sun in the form of beautiful kites. The act stands as a metaphor for reaching to their beloved God, the one who represents the best. Makar Sankranthi also happens to be the day on which Bhishma, the grand sire of Pandavas and Kauravas from the epic Mahabharata voluntarily left his mortal coil.

"May this 1st festival of 2010 bring Happiness to your Life. Wish you & your family a very Happy Makar Sankranti."
