​According to the ministry’s official Twitter account, this occasion is an opportunity to thank “Mother Nature for bestowing health, wealth, and happiness" upon us. Surya namaskar aka sun salutation yoga sequence shows our gratitude towards the sun and all that it does for the living beings.

​Makar Sankranti is one of the most widely celebrated festivals in India. This day marks the end of the winter solstice and the beginning of the harvest season in the country.

​Almost every state or region has a different name for the festival and a unique way to ring in the harvest season. While Gujarat calls it Uttarayan and celebrates it by flying paper kites in the air, in Maharashtra people exchange sesame and jaggery laddus and say: "til gul ghya, goad goad bola" (eat sesame-jaggery [laddus] and speak sweetly).
