Lohri Festival (2006) 
Pankaj Sharma

Lohri too is a festival related to the seasons. Celebrated in the month of Pausa (December-January), it marks the end of the winter season. On this occasion, children go from home to home, singing popular Lohri folk songs and collect money. Lohri is celebrated; it is marked by merrymaking around a bonfire, as a symbol of sun. Fistfuls of nuts, popcorn and pieces of sugarcane find their way into the fire, as an offering to the Sun God. This is a special day for making offerings to fire. The first Lohri for a new bride, or a new-born babe, is enthusiastically celebrated, and sweets are distributed. Lohri was celebrated with Full funfare in January. Sky was full of kites.  Have a glimpse of festivity pictures this year.
