Happy Makar sankranti to you all !!! :) and Happy kite flying festival too ! ( for detailed information about Makar sankranti - Link)
We prepare Til Ladoo and sugar halwa and exchange this while greeting people. While exchanging til-gul as tokens of goodwill people greet each other with the words, "तिळगुळ घ्या आणि गोड गोड बोला/til-gul ghya, aani god god bola" meaning ‘Accept these tilguls and speak sweet words’. The underlying thought in the exchange of til-gul is to forget the past ill feelings and hostilities and resolve to speak sweetly and remain friends.
This festival is also known for flying kites. I captured this photos today morning, more photos in next post.
