Happy Pongal . . .
Today is Pongal, the harvest festival where we pray to the Sun god for the plentiful crop. The festivals highlight is the great eats.. Pongal, made from rice, lentils, milk and ghee (clarified butter) and of course vadais and all the other good stuff.
Had to go to work early in the morning today and it is raining like crazy here. But for a brief moment, the sun did come out and grace us with a beautiful rainbow. I took that as the cue and started the prayer. Here are the pictures.
The little one takes after me for vadai eating skills..
