Makar Sankranti- The Kite Fair.

I think, India is the only country where different types of festivals are celebrated throughout the year. The celebration is started from the beginning of the year. After the arrival of  New Year, we Indians celebrates the harvesting festival and it is also said according to Indian astronomy that the Sun is stepping into the zodiac sign of Makara rashi (Capricorn) on its celestial path.

 So this is the first festival of the year in India and, this festival is given more value than any other festival. As I said previously it is celebrated for the harvesting of new crop or the first crop being harvested in the beginning of the year. This new crop is precious for the farmers- they celebrate it in a heart whelming way.

And on this day the children fly kites. And we all have named it as Guddi Mella(Kite Fair). Everybody eat Chura(Rice is being pored in the water, and after sometime the rice is being taken out form that water when the rice has soaked water and it turned soft after that, the rice is pressed by something, this is how it is made) with Curd, and laddu of puffed rice with molasses and many other things and non-veg is strictly prohibited on this day.

Wish you all a very happy and jolly Marak Snkranti and Kite fair.

#1. Wish you all a very happy Makar Sankranti & Kite Fair.

So in this way the journey of festival begins in India! Stay tuned to get updates about this types of festivals.
