Makar Sankranti marks the onset of summer and the six months auspicious period for Hindus known as Uttaarayan. Dedicated to the sun God, the harvest festival celebrates the beginning of long days. The connection with Uttaraayan dates back to the mythological era of The Mahabharata. In the ancient epic narrative, Bhishma Pitamah lay down on a bed of arrows and waited for the sun to be in Uttaraayan to breath his last.
With colourful kites flying in the sky and the aroma of delicious delicacies brewing in the air, Makar Sakranti is filled with fun and frolic. Many take a holy dip in the water to wash away their sins on this auspicious day. Not just that, people attend holy fairs like the ‘Kumbh Mela’ in Prayag and the ‘Gangasagar Mela’ at the junction of River Ganges and the Bay of Bengal.
Celebrated in unique styles across different states in India, Makar Sankranti is touted to be a time for peace and prosperity.
