Today’s post is Watercolour Illustration- Happy Bhogi.
The day preceding Pongal is called Bhogi when people discard old things and focus on new belongings.
People light up bonfires in front of their homes. They keep the fires burning by throwing useless household articles such as old clothes, old wooden furniture. Women sing songs and dance around the bonfires.
These bonfires also symbolize the disposal or burning of old habits, attachment to materials and relations. Cheers to all the new things in life.
