Ancient Tamil literature called "Thirumanthiram" by "Thirumoolar" Posted on the first day of the Tamil month "Thai". This day marks Pongal Festival and the beginning of "Utharayanam" - apparent northward movement of Sun. Tamil people pray "Sun God" on this day. The 2nd day is celebrated by farmers, who pray their bullocks and cows. This festival is being celebrated in Tamil Nadu, India and several other parts of the world. I came to know that the same festival is celebratd on the same day in Ethiopia and Somalia - quite possibly due to their trade links with ancient Tamil Kingdoms of Cheran, Cholan and Pandian. Yet, no confirmation is available on this concept.
