Pongal Harvest Festival 丰收节 2 of 10 ...



Pongal Harvest Festival 
丰收节
...
Pongal is the harvest festival 
dedicated to the sun god;
in Southern India the end of the harvest
it is observed as a 4 days festival called Pongal
...
It is like a Thanksgiving to the god for 
the plentiful harvest received. 
As I understand, it is a very big festival 
in Southern India and the tradition 
continues to be observed by the Indians in Malaysia

Amazing photos Wong, I love the theme and you've captured it so well, as you generally do with any photos you take.

Have a wonderful weekend. I'm going to be away for a while now, until I get settled in Australia, but I'll be back. Til we meet again, take care and many blessings sent your way!
