Happy Pongal 2021 Wishes Images, Status, Quotes, Messages: Dedicated to the Sun God, Pongal is a harvest festival primarily celebrated in Tamil Nadu. The four-day festival begins with Bhogi Pongal, which is followed by Surya Pongal, Maatu Pongal, and Kaanum Pongal. On the auspicious festival, which dates back to at least 2,000 years, people pray for their crops and agriculture to prosper more in the new year.
This festival is named after Pongal, the traditional sweet dish, prepared with rice boiled in milk with jaggery. It is first offered to the gods and goddesses and then enjoyed by the family. According to some scholars, the origin of the Pongal dish can be traced back to at least the Chola period; it appears in a lot of texts and inscriptions with variations in spelling.
