Thaipongal round the corner, no clay pots in the market (Pics)

The tradition of the Tamils celebrating Thaipongal was to boil milk in a clay pot and cook milk rice for the gods, but this tradition is slowly changing with Tamils getting accustomed to using aluminium pots instead for their rituals.

However, unlike in the past, where the market places in the North were filled with clay pots during Thaipongal, today we see more Tamils opting to purchase the aluminium pots.

On Thaipongal the Hindu people use their harvested crop to offer it to the sun god in a ceremonious ritual.

The Hindu people, whos main profession was agriculture celebrate this festival to give thanks to the sun god for assisting them in their agricultural activities and for giving them a bountiful harvest. They boil milk in a clay pot as a ritual, together with fresh milk and cook the rice of their first harvest to offer it to the gods in thanksgiving.

Thaipongal festival traditionally signifies prosperity.
