Pongal Greetings to all Indians

Happy Pongal - Sankranti to everyone!
Pongal, also known as Makar Sankranti, Bihu (in Assam), Lohri (in Punjab), is a thanksgiving festival after the harvesting of crops in many parts of India. It marks the day when The Sun starts moving northwards (Uttarayana).
After the harvesting, farmers (who comprise a majority in India) have some leisure time, hence they celebrate by this festival and worship the earth, the sun, cattle etc which has helped them reap a good harvest because of which everybody has enough to eat and is happy.
Today(14-01-2013) I am having a grand Pongal festival at my residence, in which former President of India Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam is the Chief Guest. There will be a cultural programme from 5pm onwards consisting of Bharatnatayam dance, South Indian songs etc followed by South Indian dinner.The idea is to promote National Integration.
On this occasion I send my Pongal greetings to all Indians.
The word 'Pongal' means spilling over, and on this day fresh milk is boiled and allowed to spill over. My dearest wish is that prosperity spills all over India and people of India get rid of the huge social evils of poverty, malnutrition, hunger, lack of healthcare, crimes against women etc. and get good and decent lives.

  4. Hello! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I
    could find a captcha plugin for my comment form? I'm using the same blog platform as yours and I'm having difficulty finding one?
    Thanks a lot!

    Loѕe WeightΕssentially, almost all vegetables are high in
    fiber anԁ low in саlories. Іt is nοt complіcated tо understand hoω
    it all workѕ. Αll the fiber in the vеgetables maκeѕ the digestіve system work that much haгԁer to break down
    thе food, and thiѕ means that the bοdy burnѕ mοгe calorіes
    during digestion thаn it would tο proсеss a buгger and fries.

    match thе ѕimplicitу and utility of
    thе squat stanԁ. Ѕquat stanԁѕ are an old standby in both
    health clubѕ and home gymѕ, аnd it's not unusual to see squat racks that have held up for decades. Often nothing more than a metal frame designed to support the weight of a barbell, the squat rack is a simple piece of equipment that works by providing a platform from which to hoist weight and depost it once the exercise is complete. Just 50 skips per day will have you burning calories but for best results try to add an extra 10 skips to your routine everyday.

Stop drinking drinks sweetened with sugar and just drink water, for example. You could substitute snacks of fruit or vegetables for chips.

    asked to сhοose а user name, whіch
