Sankranti* – A Haiku

Plateau harvests,

Kites on wind’s bounty soar.

Holy rivers pray.



Sankranti or Maghi is a January feast celebrating the beginning of the harvest in India and Nepal. Festivities include kite flying and traditional activities along the river.

  1. So beautiful.
    Happy Makar Sankranti Suzette. This is one festival, besides Diwali perhaps, that is celebrated all over India but under different names. Goes to prove how important agriculture is in Indian context. πŸ™‚
