DECORATIONS DURING PONGAL FESTIVAL :

Tamilians decorate their homes with banana and mango leaves and embellish the floor with decorative patterns drawn using rice flour.kolams/rangolis are drawn on doorsteps. Family elders present gifts to the young.  The Sun stands for “Pratyaksha Brahman” – the manifest God, who symbolizes the one, non-dual, self-effulgent, glorious divinity blessing one and all tirelessly. The Sun is the one who transcends time and also the one who rotates the proverbial wheel of time.
