Makar Sankranti is a festival of joy & prosperity, celebrated in various parts of country with different reasons. However we at Room On Call celebrate it as a fresh start of happiness, joy and thanksgiving leaving behind our failures.
About Makar Sankranti from : reference.com
The name “Makar Sankrati” refers to the sun’s transition from Sagittarius to Capricorn. Uttarayan can also refer to the six-month journey of the sun’s passage, which is a period that is also considered auspicious for anyone seeking to transcend the physical world. After Makar Sankrati, the days start becoming longer and warmer, marking the end of winter.
Makar Sankrati is also known as the festival of thanksgiving and is somewhat comparable to the western New Year’s Day, when people resolve to start anew and move on from past failures. People appreciate each other and pay homage to the sun god, who generously gives life without accepting reward.
Makar Sankrati holds significant religious importance. In Indian mythology, the hero Maharaj Bhagirath managed to liberate and redeem the 60,000 sons of Maharaj Sagar on this day.
Room On Call wishes you all a very Happy Makar Sankranti.
