Telugu Association of Jacksonville(TAJA) is celebrating Sankranthi Celebrations on Jan 18th, 2014 Saturday 4PM to 9:30 PM at Bolles High School. TAJA is inviting you and your family with your friends to attend program and make the program grand success.

Sankranthri is the only festival of Hindu that follows a solar calendar and is celebrated on the fourteenth of January every year. Pongal has astronomical significance: it marks the beginning of Uttarayana, the Sun's movement northward for a six month period. In Hinduism, Uttarayana is considered auspicious, as opposed to Dakshinaayana, or the southern movement of the sun. All important events are scheduled during this period. Makara Sankranthi refers to the event of the Sun entering the zodiac sign of Makara or Capricorn. To mark this traditional occation, TAJA is celebrating this festival in a way that portrays our culture.
