FESTIVAL OF THE YEAR, AND OF PUNJAB ……LOHRI
India is the land of agriculture, especially the state of Punjab. It is one of the largest producers of major crops like cotton, wheat and rice. This time of the year marks special time for farmers who are ready for harvesting crops. Making the days longer and night’s shorter, ending chilling winters with onset of spring, the very first and grand festival of Punjab LOHRI is here. Across Punjab the occasion is celebrated with great joy, gaiety and happiness.
The festival starts with lighting a bon-fire. Gathering, moves around the fire dancing and singing songs in praise of Dulha Batti, who was a Muslim robber, he used to help poor by stealing from rich and worked for the welfare of underprivileged. Like other occasions people get – together, dance, sing and enjoy on the longest and chilled night of Lohri. While moving around the bon-fire the devotees throw rewaries, popcorn, sugar candy, sesame seeds, jaggery and peanuts. As a custom and tradition this has been carried for so many years from now. Men and women wear new and colorful clothes to give more charm and importance to the festival.
In Punjab Lohri holds grand importance for newlywed and new born babies. The traditional dance of Punjab, Bhangra and Gidda can be seen at every corner of the street, as this festival has gained a lot of importance in previous years, and is celebrated by other communities as well.
Don’t, let go the charm of New Year and the festival, buy a dwelling unit with any of our projects for your loved ones and make this festival and year a memorable one.
