Makar Sankranti is known as Pongal in South India and as Maghi in North India. Makar Sankranti is all about prayers, sweets, and kites. The festival of Makar Sankranti is celebrated with great enthusiasm in all parts of India.
The programme began with a prayer by Primary students. The significance of the four days, Bhogi, Makara Sankranthi, Kanuma, and Mukkanuma was explained by class 7 students. Various cultural programmes depicted the significance of Sankranthi, Gobbiyallu, Basavanna, Haridasu etc.. A special Sankranthi dance by Primary students had the audience spellbound. The campus was decorated in such a way that it depicted a village atmosphere. The traditional “ Bommala Koluvu “ was arranged adding flavour for the day. The traditional “ Gangireduula Vinyasalu” mesmerised the children.
Children came in the different traditional attires like Haridasu, Farmers, Village Girls etc. The whole campus depicted the village atmosphere in a natural way where the real cocks and real Gangireddulu, made it so lively. All the staff and students participated in the celebration enthusiastically.
