Pongal, the first harvest festival of the year, is a sacred one for Tamilians all over the world and the best celebrations take place in the state of Tamil Nadu. Pongal is also called Thai Pongal as the festival marks the beginning of the Tamil month Thai and is considered to be an auspicious one and people celebrate it with much enthusiasm.
The festival is named after the ceremonial ‘Pongal’ which means to ‘boil, overflow’ and refers to the traditional dish cooked from the new harvest of rice.
