Pongal as a National festival as it is celebrated all over India. For Tamils, it is also a thanksgiving day for the Gods, Farmers and Cows. As our country is
getting urbanized more and more, most of us have left our roots. Hence Pongal is now a day of remembrance of our roots. It is very important to celebrate this festival today because most of us forgotten about our farmer brothers who have stayed back in the farms to make our daily food.
