The co- relation of cosmic events with individual life
& values is one of the most astounding traits of Indian

transition of Sun towards the Northern hemisphere .The
celebrations beautifully signify that as the sun beats
the chill & spreads warmth may we mortals too spread
the warmth of love & happiness . Kite flying , Sweets
