Pongal being one of the very popular festival in Tamil Nadu, is celebrated as a tribute to the farmers. It is a festival celebrated for four days which usually occurs from January 14th to January 17th every year. In tamil calender it's from 1st of Thai to 3rd of Thai madham. The day before pongal is called Bhogi during which people will discard their old belongings and celebrate new possessions. Then the main event of Pongal is called the Thai pongal.

Drawing Rangoli designs for pongal is one of the important traditions followed by the Hindu people. We used to wake up early in the morning during Thai madham (month), take bath and do the rangoli designs everyday in front of our house. These rangoli designs are drawn with different colours and are made eye catchy.
