"If you tickle the earth with a hoe she laughs with a harvest"
Lohri is celebrated throughout the country in different forms, having various regional names as a harvest festival. It is called Pongal in the South, Bhugali Bihu in Assam, Bhogi in Andhra Pradesh and Sankranti in the central part of the country. Modes of celebrating Lohri are also different, but the message conveyed by the festival, that of setting aside differences and rejoicing by celebrating the end of the harvest season and the chilly winter is the same.
The festival of Lohri was celebrated at Witty International School, Bhilwara today with traditional fervour and gaiety. Students of Grade Second gave speech and explained the scientific reason for celebrating Lohri. The enthusiastic students performed ‘bhangra’ on the tunes of drum beats around the bon fire.
