Makar Sankranti marks the beginning of summer and six months pious period for Hindus known as Uttarayan. The importance of Uttarayan is shown in the famous epic Mahabharat too in which Bhishma Pitamah was believed to have waited for the sun to be in uttarayan so he could die willingly. As per another legend, Lord Surya forgave his son Shani and his son visited him on Sankranti. And that’s why people distribute everyone sweets and urge them to let go of any negative or angry feelings. While distributing sweets famous line “til gul ghya and god god bola” (which means eat this sesame and jaggery and speak sweet words) is used in Maharashtra.

This auspicious day marks the spring of India which is a traditional event. This festival is also regarded as the beginning of an auspicious phase for Indian culture. The Sun moves from one direction to the other which gradually changes from one zodiac sign to the other. This change is known as Sankranti. Further, the sun moves into the Capricorn zodiac which is termed as Makara, hence the name ‘Makar Sankranti’ name evolved. According to Indian culture, Makar Sankranti festival is termed as a holy phase which marks the beginning of longer days as compared to nights.

Happy Makar Sankranti!
