The tamil festival Pongal starts with Bhogi.  It falls on the last day of the tamil month Margazhi. On this day, people will clean their house and draw kolam. This is celebrated to thank Lord Indhiran- The God for rain. In Villages, people will burn the unwanted items. Also Kaapu kattal is done in the evening with poola poo and Neem leaves.

On this day, we make upputtu or puran boli in their home.
