Lohri Celebration


2018-01-13

The festival of Lohri, celebrated on 13 th January every year is primarily celebrated by Sikhs and Hindus all across the country. This festival marks the end of winter season and is traditionally believed to welcome the sun to the northern hemisphere ( Uttarayan- northward journey). This festival also marks the harvesting time of rabi crops, that is, the crops of the winter season. According to Bhagwat Gita, Lord Krishna manifests himself in his full magnificence during this time. It is observed a night before Makar Sankranti. This occasion involves a puja parikrama around the bonfire with prasad of groundnuts, popcorns and rewaris. This festival is celebrated with great pomp and show, especially in the north Indian region. At SRI SIIM on Lohri evening students and faculty made merry by gathering around the bonfire. Rewri, groundnuts, peanuts, popcorns were shared and relished. Once again SRI SIIM celebrated all the festivals of India irrespective of caste and creed.
