Makar Sankranti: til-gul ghya, god god bola
 
Makar Sankranti is one of the most auspicious occasions for the Hindus, and is celebrated in almost all parts of the country in myriad cultural forms, with great devotion, fervour & gaiety. It is a harvest festival. Makar Sankranti is perhaps the only Indian festival whose date always falls on the same day every year i.e. the 14th of January. Zee TV artistes reminisce with us about this day of celebration.

 
Jay Bhanushali:

Every Gujarati worth his Dhokla will tell you that Makar Sankranti is one of the most auspicious occasions for the Hindus, and is celebrated in almost all parts of the country in myriad cultural forms, with great devotion, fervor & gaiety. It is a harvest festival. Makar Sankranti is perhaps the only Indian festival whose date always falls on the same day every year i.e. the 14th of January.  I was not very good at it, but absolutely loved flying kites.
 


Rajeev Surti:

Being a Gujju I feel very embarrassed of the fact that I cannot fly kites for nuts while my entire family are brilliant at the activity. As a child I used to sit downstairs when my father, uncles and cousins would be on the terrace flying kites passionately. It's not that I did not try but after many failed attempts I realized that I am only good at holding the Phirki while someone else calls the shots. I loved the sesame sweets (til) prepared during makar sankranti and the most exiting part was digging out the 25 paise coins hidden inside those delicious til gud mithais.

I've always loved this festival, but I've never gotten to celebrate it! Disapprove Maybe I'll go to the temple with my sister and do it this year. Smile
