The festival is also about letting go what all happened in the previous year, and embracing the new phase with positivity and wisdom.

As we celebrate ancient Hindu festival of Pongal/Makar Sankranti/Lohri/Bihu, we should also celebrate the strong Indic traditions of astronomy and mathematics, indelibly tied with the shared experience of the nation, over thousands of years.
