Pongala at the hearts
This year's Attukal Pongala is over, but the sweetness of the pongala will remain in the million hearts who gathered here for a whole year, and invite them all to the pongala next year. A social gathering above a religious one, Attukal Pongala combines the religious with the social.A million new faces means a million new relationships. Even though the millions that have gathered have different physical identies, they have become united through a single spiritual identity. That is what religious gatherings like Attukal Pongala profess and practice.
