Pongal is a four-day festival. Its first day is celebrated in the form of a respected Bhogi festival of Lord Indra.

For the abundance of the crop, tribute is given to Lord Indra, which provides rich wealth and prosperity in the country.  Another ritual is celebrated on this day, namely Bhogi Mantalu. In this celebration, waste products of the house are thrown out of wood and cow dung fire. Girls dance around the fire and sing songs in praise of the gods.

On the second day of Pongal, the work of worship or artificial worship is done when pongal (rice) is boiled in a pottery in the milk outside the house and it is offered to the Lord Surya along with other divine objects. All people wear traditional costumes and signs. Another interesting ritual is also where the husband and wife especially distribute the utensils of worship. Pongal celebrations are generally celebrated in the village but with the same devotion .According to the appointed ritual, a turmeric plant is bundled around the pot in which the rice will be boiled. Prasad includes  coconut and banana dishes and sugarcane. Apart from Prasad, a common feature of worship is Kollam. Kollam is auspicious design which is traditionally made in white lime powder in the morning in the morning after bathing.

The third day is known as Mattu Pongal and it is kept for the cow. In the neck of the cow, the beads of beads and floral beads are built and worshiped. They are brought in pongal to the centers of the village. The sounds of cattle bells attract villagers and people tie their cattle together.

The cattle's artisan is removed so that they do not have a bad look. According to one story, Shiva asked his bull to go to Earth and asked him to massage and bath the oil every day and eat it once a month. Inadvertently Baswa announced that everyone should eat daily and should take a bath with oil once a month. This mistake made Shiva angry and he cursed Baswa that he must live forever on earth and solve the fields of the people so that people can get help in generating more food. Thus there is a relation with the cattle in this day.(Too wish your father click here)

The last day of Pongal is called kannum Pongal. On this day turmeric leaves are washed and then kept on the ground. Many types of food are kept on this leaf like sweet rice, betel nut, sugarcane etc.
