Pongal Valthukal..


as usual for every hindu festival comes the confusion on which dates the festival should take place.

do we do it according to sri-lankan time or do we stick out and do it at london time?

using this little problem the temples in london take full advantage, two main temples in south london, wimbledon pillayar koil and tooting amman temple always celebrate festivals on a differnt day. a business man would tell you this will maximize your income, imagine having two valentines day, two christmas, ...hmmm!!

but anyways..which ever day u do it, and which ever reason you do it (some people still thing its tamil new year when its a harvest festival), nalla Pongungo!
