… everyone in India knows this word. It is the farmers’ harvest festival. It signifies a new beginning. During Sankranti, people welcome God into their homes by decorating the entrances with a rangoli made of flowers or powdered paint pigments. The middle of the rangoli is often decorated with an incense stick stuck into a pile of cow dung.
