With the warm winter sun hitting hard and the sweet smell of til ke ladoo engulfing our senses, it’s a wakeup call that Makar Sankranti is here.
The festival of harvesting is celebrated across with people not only indulging in some finger licking food but also enjoying a playful time flying kites with family members.
The lead star cast of Colors’ popular show Udann, shares their plans and views on the festival.
Vijayendra Kumeria aka Sooraj said, “I am from Ahmedabad and Makar Sankranti is a popular festival there. I remember flying kites with all my cousins and participating in championships. It was our favourite time of the year. The skies would be filled with kites of different colors, making it look vibrant. We would also have Til and Gud ka laddu. This year too, keeping up with the traditions, I will try to fly a kite on the set as we will be shooting.”
Chakor, played by Meera Deosthale added, “The festival of Uttarayan marks the day when winter begins to turn into summer. The best place to enjoy this festival is the Sabarmati Riverfront or the Ahmedabad Police Stadium, where people gather to see the sky filled with thousands of kites. I enjoy flying kites, and I enjoy participating in competitions too. Til Gud ka Laddu is my favourite and like every year, I’ll be distributing them on the set too.”
Here’s wishing all Happy Makar Sankranti!!
