is done to Thank Sun omachi. He gives us Arusi (Rice), pappu(Pulses), goutumai. (wheat). - Says Sanja
Her aunty at school makes it a point to tell stories / heads up on each festival.
Sanja explained what is pongal. She wanted to know why is Bhogi celebrated. Here is what I came up with. We burn old papers/ sleeping mats / brooms etc to signify that we want to burn all our past wrong doings. And to use it for our own betterment (;)), I asked her what bad habit is she going to burn away. We have decided we wont cry when we get up in the morning. She will get up everyday with smile and laughter. And for past 3 days , she is keeping it up :).
