The first festival to grace us in the year 2021 is Makar Sankranti, which is celebrated with much joy and fervour in our country. It marks the arrival of the spring season, bidding goodbye to the chilly winter. Dedicated to the deity Surya (sun), this day, also known as ‘Maghi’, is a major harvest festival and also marks the first day of the sun’s transit into Makara (Capricorn) raashi (zodiac sign) and is observed in the month of January.
Makar Sankranti is observed with social festivities such as colourful decorations, rural children going house to house, singing and asking for treats in some areas, melas (fairs), dances, kite flying, bonfires and feasts.
