In the South of India it is known as Pongal and is celebrated for four days. At Ekadaksha Learning Center Pongal was celebrated in a unique but simple way.

After explaining and showing pictures to the children, they were also given the opportunity to enact each day of Pongal - bhogi pongal, surya (sun) pongal, maatu (cow) pongal, kaanum pongal. While the teachers narrated,  the children were given props. The photos show the children's involvement and their joy in participation.
