Pongal, the harvest festival, marks the onset of spring. It is celebrated every year in January. Students of the Junior Campus wore ethnic dresses to mark this day. Colourful rangolis adorned the floor, sugar canes, colourful Pongal pots and other decorations enhanced the festive spirit. As part of the celebrations, chakkara pongal and sugarcane were distributed to the students. The children were delighted by the presence of a cow and a calf and understood the significance of worshipping a cow as a symbol of sanctity and its importance in agriculture for a farmer. The children painted tiny clay pots to take home as a reminder of the wonderful day of celebrations.
