One should spend this day in a village and the happiness in the faces of the people is worth seeing. They all may not be rich and they all may not be having all the facilities but their faces are full of smiles with a lot of satisfaction is worth seeing. Many times we run after money and never care for small happy moments in our lives. Once we witness these celebrations we can understand how much happiness will come with contentment.
I wish all the members of ISC a happy Kanuma festival. A special Item made with black gram will be eaten by all the people and it is a tradition in East Godavari Dt of Andhra Pradesh.
Next day the mattu pongal is celebrated by them by decorating their bullock, cow in the house by painting the horns, wearing garlands with bells etc. as of they are thanking and honouring the cattle as they helped them since ploughing to carrying the harvested produce.
On the next day they visit their relative's houses as they could not visit so far due to no funds and time. That is kaanum (seeing) pongal.
