Hindu devotees are preparing to commemorate the Thai Pongal festival tomorrow on a grand scale.
The Estate fraternity is also geared to commemorate the festival with the Hindus worldwide. Almost all main towns in the Nuwara Eliya District were very busy throughout today with the Hindus engaged in brisk buying. Thai Pongal is introduced in the Hindu culture as the offering of Milk Rice prepared with grain to the Sun God who makes an active contribution to farming and the dawn of the New Year for the Hindus. The Estate community claims that they are much satisfied to commemorate Thai Pongal with the dawn of peace and freedom to the entire country.
