Pongal celebration and bullock cart parade depicting Tamil tradition
Posted on: 19/01/2017 (Thursday)

Pongal Festival was celebrated at Jaffna Hindu College on 14th Jan 2017.This is an annual event arranged by the College to celebrate the first day of the Tamil month Thai. This festival started with Pooja at the School's Gnana Vairavar temple and proceeded with making milk rice for the Sun god.

Also, Jaffna Hindu 2007 batch old boys used the occasion to create awareness among the younger generation about the Tamil customs and traditions. They did that differently by taking a bullock cart parade from Mallakam junction to Jaffna town and from there to school. They told our webteam that Jaffna Hindu is an icon of Tamil and Hindus in North and is protecting Tamil and Hindu culture and traditions for decades. This was also one of those activities to protect Tamil culture and traditions as it was a dream of Navalar Peruman which made him start our college.
