Makar Sankranti

Wish you all a very Happy Makar Sankranti.

The word ‘Sankranti’ signifies the movement of the sun from one zodiac sign to another. On every 14th January, the Sun enters in Makar raashi (Capricorn). Makar Sankraanti is festival is dedicated to Lord Sun. The Lord Sun is worshiped for bestowing good harvest and nurturing live stock in all the part of India and abroad by different names. The people take holly dip in Ganga to purges all sins. Til (Sesame seeds) and Jaggery(Raw Sugar) donated and distributed on this day. Sikh community celebrates Lohri one day before Sankranti.

This is one of the few Indian festivals that falls on the same day every year according to the Gregorian calendar. This day the Day and night are equally long. May Lord Sun bless all a blissful life.
