Sankranti, a festival of harvest, considered as harbinger of prosperity and welfare, is celebrated across India in varied hues and colours, showcasing our rich cultural heritage. The festival takes a prime position in the hearts of Manthani people with great show of pomp and gaiety , spanning over three days like Bhogi , Makara Sankranti and Kanuma in that order while Makara Sanranti holds its prime significance . The day of Sankranti is embellished with various celebrations like cricket and drawing Rangoli ( Muggulu ) by women folk decorating the frontispiece of their homes with colours in free hand drawing , depicting various art forms , decorating Mother earth as a reverence .
