Makar Sankranti And It’s Values For Hindus Across The World

Makar Sankranti is the harvest festival of Hindus.

It has different names in different states like Maghi Bihu in Assam, Poush Sankranti in Southern India and  Makar Sankranti in  North. In Bihar it is also called Til Sankranti but the purpose is same.

That is to pray Sun God and celebrate first harvest.

The Rising Sun…a view from my balcony.

“I really feel blessed to have an East facing home.”

This festival marks end of Winter and arrival of Spring when it is sunny and pleasant.

According to Hindu Calendar Sun moves towards Northern Hemisphere hence called Utrayan in many states.

It almost falls on the same day that is 14 or 15 of January.

Makar Sankranti is celebrated with lots of decorations in the house, making rangolis, kite flying, bonfires and feast.

It feels as if whole India is celebrating a second Holi.

It is one of the largely celebrated festivals of Hindus across the world. India, Nepal, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Singapore, Canada, Australia, America are such countries.

One of the most important part of this festival is to take bath in holy river like Ganga, Yamuna, Godavari, Krishna and Kaveri. Precisely Ganga Sagar at Pryag, people take bath in the river and pray to Sun God.

It is believed that exposing yourself to Sun God on this day along with dipping yourself in holy water protect you from any skin disease and eradicate all your sins.

Kumbh Mela, one of the biggest fair and oldest tradition started by Adi Shankarachaya.

It plays a very significant role in Makar Sankranti when near about 100 million people come their to enjoy and take bath in River Ganga and Yamuna.

Almost all the states prepare a common sweet from Sesame (Til) and Jaggery (Gud) and a very special food : Khichdi.

Check out my channel and try the recipe of Poha, Til and Jaggery Laddoos.


I conclude by saying that, Despite being so different religiously and in culture this festival shows how we all are bonded together.

Story of a Tree

A seed under the ground is happily watered everyday. It takes nutrition from mud and sunlight.

Soon it starts growing.

Tiny little leaves.. Thinly spread roots. Day by day it grow from to shoot.

Fresh green leaves, beautiful flowers around and spreading fresh air.

Tiny little sapling is happy tree now.

Kids tie ropes and make swing in it’s branches. Tired people sit under it’s s trunk and rest in shade.

Women’s pluck flowers and birds make the nest. All are happy so is the tree.

But as days went by people started cutting branches for their own need.

With teary eyes it feels the pain but was speechless.

Years later it grows old and has less leaves. Now kids don’t play neither birds make the nest.

Neither people rest nor woman’s pluck flowers.

In this mean world people only take good care of you till they use you.

And one day, a man came with saw and started cutting down the tree.

This is story of a tree so familiar yet so different.

What do you think should we be this mean?
