I was born into the Catholic faith but my search for the miraculous is looking beyond the belief of my culture.
In this blog, I am travelling with you to celebrate the Pongal Festival.
This harvest festival is one of the most important Hindu Festivals of the year just as Christmas is, for us Christians.
And like Christmas it brings hope and peace to its believers.
Old scores are settled and past transgressions forgiven.
Old clothes are burnt and new bright clots are worn for the first time.
It is all about new beginnings and fresh starts.
Sound familiar, don’t you think?
Over the next few posts I hope to post a few videos which will allows us to get into the spirit of this celebration before delving back into the mystery of it all.
