The staff and the students celebrated Pongal in its traditional manner to make the students understand the cultural heritage of Tamilnadu . It was insightful to see them making a colourful rangoli, decorating the campus with coconut leaves, mango leaves and arranging a stove using bricks and stones. The teachers cooked sweet pongal in a mud pot using twigs and brought the true festivity into the campus. The children were extremely delighted to feed the cow and its calf with bananas and sweet pongal. They decorated the cow and calf with flowers and applied sandalwood paste and kumkum on their forehead. To rejoice in the charm of our tradition, the children were taken for a bullock cart ride which gave lots of fun. Amidst all festivities, they welcomed the onset of spring by flying kites. In addition, students were explained about the sun’s transit to Capricorn. The whole campus was vibrant as the children wished each other, ‘pongalo pongal’.
