Amid Covid Mysureans celebrate traditional Makara Sankranti

Mysuru: Makara Sankranti is one of the major festivals celebrated in the State and puranas say that it has a lot of significance.

With the arrival of Sankranti, the day also gets longer. The Sun starts moving towards the North. With Sankranti, the month of Dhanu comes to an end.

Amidst the threat of Coronavirus pandemic, people in Mysuru made their way to the nearest market to buy flowers, fruits, sugarcane, sesame seeds and sugar. Womenfolk were also seen going on a shopping spree to buy new clothes.

There’s another ritual that takes place in rural areas of State as farmers make cows and bulls run through fire! The ritual is named ‘Kicchu Hayisuvudu,’ and involves cows, bulls and their masters running through flames. It is believed that doing so will ward-off evil and bring good luck to them.
