leading up to pongal (harvest) celebrations




Yesterday morning I was surprised to see this little, precious delight ! I was told that, over the next 4 weeks there are the preparations for the Pongal (harvest) festival - and this little detail is one of them !



Drawn by hand with sand at the entrance of homes and temples and work places... this one was found inside the Sri Narayani temple in front of the doorway leading to one of the offices...

The drawings are made new everyday but it is the flowers,small clump of grass and ghee lamp which is particular to this time of the year...
