  1. My wife is Gujurati and each year we make a big deal about Diwali. I love how the house get’s cleaned and decorated. I especially enjoy photographing the diya.

    I’d love to learn more about Pongal. I must ask my friends from Kerala if they celebrate Pongal.


    1. India being predominantly agricultural, most of our states celebrate the harvest festival. It’s just called by different names. In northern India they celebrate Makara Sankranthi or Uttarayana. I’m not sure what they call it in Gujarat.
