Celebrations have begun for the festival of harvest across the country. The festival is referred to by different names in different parts of the country such as Pongal in Tamil Nadu, Makar Sankranti in Northern India, Gujarat, West Bengal, and Karnataka and Bihu in Assam.

The festival of harvest, Lohri, is being celebrated today in North India especially in Punjab, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Delhi, Jammu and Chandigarh. Lohri marks the end of winter and welcomes longer days of summer as the sun begins its journey to the northern hemisphere. People light bonfires to celebrate the harvest.
