Pongal! This Tamil word that means "a festival of thanksgiving" is celebrated in January, when the Sun God gives his blessings to the Earth. There are different versions of this blessing, but one of them happens in the form of showering its rays on the Earth. This can be observed in many regions across India, and its celebration marks a joyous occasion for every South Indian. Celebrate the Pongal festival in style with our Pongal PowerPoint Slide.
