The festival of Pongal is held dear particularly by the farming community as it marks the end of harvesting season. The festivities begin with `Bhogi’ and the first day is considered to be a prelude to the celebrations that follow. `Bhogi’ is observed as a thanksgiving occasion to Lord `Indra’, the God of Heavens. The next day is the `Pongal’ day, which is celebrated to pay respects to `Surya’, the Sun God. It is the day of a new beginning and makes people go for joyful celebrations. As a mark of respect to the cattle, the farmer’s best friends, the third day of the Pongal festival is celebrated as `Maattu Pongal’. `Kaanum Pongal’ marks the end of the four-day celebrations.
Pongal is celebrated with joy in LKMHSS with community members like parents, teachers, and students. Students performed various kinds of activities during the pongal festival, pongal was made by cooking rice in an earthen port at the courtyard on a stove made of bricks. The various celebrations and events at the school were designed in a manner to evoke & expose the students’ inner most talents. We celebrated the pongal celebration in a splendid manner, starting with a traditional song. The students participated in the drama competition and did a magnificent job to make laurels to the pongal celebrations. The emotional abilities and acting skill of students exhibit our true tradition and culture. The pongal festival celebration in our school is a true manifestation of our rich culture and traditions. We can be seen at its vibrant best.
