People keenly await this festival to fly kites, called ‘patang’. Kites for Uttarayan are made of special light-weight paper & ultra-light bamboo sticks. The string. called ‘manja’, often contains abrasives to cut down other people’s kites. In the major cities of #Mumbai #Pune #Ahmedabad#Surat #Vadodara #Rajkot & #Jamnagar the skies appear filled with thousands of kites as people enjoy Two full days of Uttarayan on their terraces. When people cut someone’s kite they rejoice n yell words like “kaypo chhe!!”.
Sweets particularly from sesame (Til) & a sugar base such as jaggery(gud), Til-Gul, are made in homes. This type of sweet is a symbolism for being together in peace & joyfulness despite the uniqueness & differences between individuals. On the day of Makar Sankranti, various spiritual practices are observed. It is common for people to take a holy dip in rivers & it is generally believed that doing so would absolve them of their past sins.
The Only Constant thing in Life is Change & The Eternal Mystery of Life is a New Start.
Makar Sankranti denotes great planning & happy beginnings, daring new destinations & new targets to achieve New heights of Success & Sweetness.
Wish You a very Happy & Joyful #MakarSankranti2019
