Harvest festival Pongal 2020


The Harvest festival Pongal was celebrated in a meaningful way by  the students and staff of SKLC and Grove school . It was celebrated in a grand and spectacular way and began with prayer followed by performance by the folk dancers.

Pongal and folk dance goes hand in hand . They were entertained by the traditional folk art performances by Kalai  Sundar Mani, Thanjai T.G.Raju and their group. Karagattam was done with so much of agility and perfection that they left the audience enthralled.

Mayillattam is an artistic and religious form of dance and the dancers dressed in peacocks delighted the audience.

Puliattam was fun with the tigers entertaining the children . The conventional Poikal kuthirai dance with the performers donning the role of the King and Queen entertained the audience too.

The event concluded with the boiling of Sweet Pongal to connote prosperity and ended with the enthusiastic  roar of children shouting ‘ Pongolo Pongal ‘.
