Happy Makara Sankranthi to everyone. Like the last 3years, we did bhogi to Chutku last evening where we put yeLLu bella (til and jaggery) with cut pieces of sugarcane on his head and do a ‘Nazar Utaarna’ for him. Its a custom that I guess symbolises prosperity and good health for all his life.
My Dad putting the mixture on his head.
Batting away all the coins and otherstuff falling on his head.
Im glad he enjoyed the whole thing.
Today morning, i hurriedly prepared both sweet and khara pongal, did a quick pooja and gave the sweet mixture of yeLLu bella, sugarcane, banana and sakkare acchu to mom-atleast managed to give it to one person!! Before rushing to work.
So hows all your day going?
