Often called the “Harvest Festival”, Thai Pongal is celebrated to commemorate the beginning of harvesting crops in the fields. This harvest festival dedicated to the Sun God, is a four-day festival celebrated by one and all. The term ‘Pongal” in Tamil means ‘to boil’, while ‘Ponga” translates to ‘overflowing’, thus indicating abundance and prosperity.
