On-Site And Online Programs Marking The End Of The Winter Solstice

2022 Jan 08 - 2022 Jan 16

Pongal Indian Heritage Centre Activities Singapore

Welcome the new year this January at the Indian Heritage Centre (IHC) with Crafting Nature, an immersive display of culture, tradition, and thanksgiving in celebration of the Indian harvest festival Pongal. Traditionally celebrated over four days, the festival marks the end of the winter solstice and is named for its signature dish pongal, where rice is boiled with milk and spices in new clay pots till it overflows. Cheers of “pongalo pongal!” (hail Pongal!) erupt when the pot of rice froths and boils over, to signify wishes for overflowing fortunes for the new year.
From January 8 to 16, 2022, IHC presents a series of 28 on-site and online programs that will immerse you in the Pongal festivities. Highlights include heritage trails, Pongal pot
painting, drop-in craft activities, and a Tanjore art workshop (a classical South Indian painting style). Participants can also embark on an educational and culinary journey through online offerings such as an interactive learning portal, original storytelling videos, and cooking demonstrations, and even a Pongal music video!

For more information, visit indianheritage.org.sg or IHC’s Facebook page.
