Makar Sankranti which is also known as Harvest and Kite flying festival is upon us. On this occasion kites adorn the sky and people exchange pleasantries and sweetmeats. Makar Sankranti is also known as Uttaryan, Khichdi, Suggi Habba and Sishur Saenkraat among others. As per Indian ethos, Sankranti is the holy period as it marks the beginning of longer days and end of winters. On this auspicious day, the sun enters into the sun sign of Capricorn which is known as Makar Rashi and that’s why there is ‘makar’ in the name. And the word ‘Sankranti’ signifies the transition of the sun from one sun sign to another.
