A great festival celebrated in the city of Trivandrum where lakhs of people participate and cook a pot full of sweet rice on the road by setting up a three stone burner. A scene to be seen and wonder. Though I have not witnessed this festival physically, I get the prasadam from my relatives residing in Trivandrum. Waiting for an opportunity to enjoy this Pongala festival.
