INTRODUCTION

 
Life on earth is made possible largely due to an important and never-failing phenomenon the regular, periodic rising of the sun. It is no wonder that the sun is worshipped as a god by the ancient peoples of the world. It is said that one full year for us humans corresponds to one full day for the divine.

Thus the night- time of the gods corresponds to that six-month period which ends on a day designated by Hindus as Makara Sankranti. A new day begins for the gods and for us on earth; when the generally southern direction of the sun (dakshinaayana) changes to a generally northern direction (uttaraayana).

This point in time when dakshinaayana ends and uttaraayana begins, proclaiming a new day for the heavenly, is a cause for worship of the sun and a festival. It is also the time when the winter crop is harvested another reason for feasting.
