216. Happy Pongal / Sankranti


One of my favourite festivals is Sankranti. Its a festival of worshiping first crop or harvest of farmers.

Miss those early sankranti mornings  coloring the house fronts with Rangoli. It felt so beautiful to see colorful streets with creative designs.

The another best part of the festival is Ellu Bella (made with sesame seeds, coconuts, peanuts, sugar or jaggery blocks). I feel the taste of sesame seeds really hits on Sankranti time. Offering ellu bella to friends and family & greeting each other with the words “Ellu bella tindu olle matannadi” (Kannada language), is such a sweet gesture on colorful day.

My Sankranti day happened perfect with divine blessings, spicy pongal, delicious sweet pongal and my favourite ellu bella.

Wish you all HAPPY PONGAL / SANKRANTI

197. Independence Day


Finally I found my hidden post which I assumed of publishing……..

Anyway here it goes my Independence day post…..

It is been 3 years I’m missing India Independence day. Missing my homeland’s independence day feels terribly bad. But celebrating it being distant is a different feel. I’m happy with this….

Happy Independence Day guys…..
