Thai Pongal 2021, Time & SOP!

07.01.2021- Petaling Jaya

This year’s Pongal falls on Thursday, 14th January at 7.26 am. The auspicious time to prepare the Pongal (milk rice) is between 9am to 10.20am or alternatively between 11.55 am to 1.20 pm.

As the time between 7.26 am to 8.55 am is Yamagandam, it is not advisable to make Pongal at this time.

In the current pandemic, all Hindus are requested to celebrate the Pongal festival in their own homes. Temples may celebrate the festival keeping the limit of 30 people at a time and following all the existing SOPs for places of worship. It is advised that large public celebrations of Pongal are avoided this year.

As it signifies, the festival of Pongal ushers in a new beginning. Therefore, we pray that the coming month of Thai will bring us all auspiciousness, good health, prosperity.
