Pongal Celebration images 2017 to all friends : – Bogi festival or Bhogi is the first day of Pongal and is celebrated in honor of Lord Indra, “the God of Clouds and Rains”. All the houses from the richest to the humblest are thoroughly scrubbed and whitewashed. Lord Indra is worshiped for the abundance of harvest, thereby bringing plenty and prosperity to the land. Homes are cleaned and decorated with “Kolam” – floor designs drawn in the white paste of newly harvested rice with outlines of red mud. Thus, this day is also known as Indran. On Bhogi all people clean out their homes from top to bottom, and collect all unwanted goods. This day is meant for domestic activities and of being together with the family members. Often pumpkin flowers are set into cow-dung balls and placed among the patterns. Fresh harvest of rice, turmeric and sugarcane is brought in from the field as preparation for the following day. Hence share this festival happiness with each other.
