Pongal Celebrations in South East Asia

In Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia and Myanmar the festival of Pongal is one of the biggest Hindu festivals celebrated on a national scale that rallies round the Tamils from far and wide.Pongal is a harvest festival - the Tamil equivalent of Thanksgiving.

Singapore has about 200,000 Tamils who constitute the third main cultural group. An early morning ritual in the homes begins with rice cooked in new pots which are allowed to boil over as a sign of prosperity.

In an agriculture based country, like India, the harvest plays an important part. The farmer cultivating his land depends on cattle, timely rain and the Sun. Once a year, he expresses his gratitude to these during the harvest festival. With the end of the wet month of Margazhi (mid December to mid January) the new Tamil month of Thai heralds a series of festivals. The first day of this month is a festival day known as "Pongal Day".

Pongal means the "boiling over" of milk and rice during the month of Thai and it marks a period of plenty, peace and happiness.

We celebrate this day with our Tamil colleagues, remembering and giving thanks for the blessings.
