In this article, I have given brief description of Sankranthi festival.


Sankranthi and its importance:

Sankranthi is the festival for Telugu people. On Sankranthi, sun enters into "Makhara" zodiac. This festival is commenced in three days. On first day, Bhogi is commenced and people takes head bath and then they worship god. On next day, mainly, ladies show their interest on drawing white decorated lines on the floor infront of the houses. They would like to do variety foods on Sankranthi. This festival is commenced by southern people.

For this day, farmers took their crops to their houses. On Kanuma sankranthi, farmers worship oxes, cows and their agricultural tools in a way of gratitude. Before 30 days to Bhogi, Sree Vaishnavaas would start Dhanurmaasa vratham by reciting Thiruppavai during 30 days. During this period, they worship Lord Sreemannarayana. One the last day of Dhanurmaasam, Vaishnavaas commences Goda Sreeranganatha marriage celebration. Children are very happy on Sankranthi by flying kites in the sky. Most of the people believe that this is kites festival also. In Tamilnadu, this festival is named as 'Pongal'. The below is the symbol of commencing Sankranthi festival.
