The festival

13 Jan

Hi there again, sorry could not write for sometime as the night shift has already taken a toll on me. Pongal special for you 🙂

My little world and I am sure your world is also gearing up for the upcoming Pongal celebrations. Pongal is a unique festival celebrated by people in here. What makes this event special?  There is quite an interesting history for this festival. We are not going to touch that much. Basics, the festival is a thanksgiving ceremony for the Sun Lord. People have valued and worshipped  the sun for centuries, this dates back to the oldest human civilizations. What is there in the star which burns the day off in the earth and goes to the other part of the world to burn there while we have a chilly  night taken over by the moon? Sounds dumb? Unlike the current generation which hosts temples for actors (actresses yeah) and fan worshipping, when people had simpler lifestyles and not meaner or perhaps less, they respected their sole source of everything, the Sun. The sun is the only source of energy to this planet. And we come up somewhere in the food chain which ranges from plants to microscopic organisms to the blue whale between the omnivores and carnivores. Our planet is considered to be a broken part of the sun cooled down to give earth to life. When the next time we consider a national holiday  on the aides of January, think again. We are giving respect to the lone crusader that gave life. Better we start quick, even he’s got life, it could end, yeah it is roughly a couple billion years or is ours perhaps lesser? I am considering the day be used up well. I will, in the future.
