Pongal is an important festival native to South India, particularly Tamil Nadu that marks the commencement of the harvest season or the sun's northward movement. Marking the onset of the new season, the Pongal festival is a great way of ushering in the new by wiping out old clutter and welcoming the year with new crops. The literal translation of the word 'Pongal' means "boiling over" or "spilling over" in Tamil, which in Indian tradition is a way of denoting abundance and prosperity.
