Pongal ‘O’ Pongal

Pothys wishes you a Happy Thai Pongal. Let the sweetness of the Pongal fill your homes with everlasting happiness and prosperity.

Pongal is the most significant festival in India where families come together to honor the farmer communities. Homes are adorned with beautiful kolams and thoranams are tied at the entrance to welcome the guests. Pongal is celebrated as Makar Sankranti in northern parts of India; where people take holy dips in rivers and welcome spring after the winter solstice. This indicates the sun entering the Capricorn zodiac sign. This is an auspicious time to kick-start new ventures.

In Tamil Nadu, people clear old things and clean their homes to welcome new beginnings. They bathe early in the morning and wear ethnic attires; offer Pongal and sweets to the sun god to seek his blessings to prosper throughout the year. Bulls and cows are worshipped; their horns are decorated with trinkets. People offer delicacies to them and treat them as one among the family. When it comes to traditional attires, every year Pongal creates a buzz among all. Let’s dive in to get a glimpse of the Pongal collection 2023.
