The first day of the four-day festival Pongal or Makar Sankranti is known as Bhogi. This festival is all about discarding old things to bring new ones. It is similar to that of Holika in Northern India. In this festival, people of Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu gather at dawn and arrange a bonfire to discard all the old things. Their houses are also painted and decorated to give it a new festive look. In some villages of the concerned states, the horns of oxen and buffaloes are painted in bright colours. All the people of these two states celebrate this festival with great enthusiasm as it is the time when they also make their harvests ready. Bhogi is considered to be the Lohri in South India. 

Significance of Bhogi

Bhogi is celebrated for the sake of the God of Rain and Clouds- Indra to shower his blessings for the abundance of harvest. Hence, it is also known as Indran in some parts of India. 

Rituals of Bhogi

For Bhogi, people wake up early in the morning and clean their houses. Women of the houses decorate the front portion of their houses with Rangoli aka kollam or muggulu. Farmers arrange a special puja with sandalwood paste before they start cutting paddy in their fields. In the evening, they light up the bonfire in front of their houses. And they keep it burning by throwing old and useless belongings of them on the fire like clothes, wooden furniture, agricultural waste etc. Then women sing and dance around the bonfire. The bonfire symbolises the disposal of old habits and attachments to materials and relations as well.
