Pongal is the festival of harvest, a festival of togetherness, fun, sharing and worm moments. This festival brings forth the importance of harvest of the food grains in our lives even today. It brings families and friends together to celebrate a good crop and seek blessings from God. Society for the Confluence of Festivals in India (SCFI) seeks to develop a sustainable programme that will assist the people of modern world to understand the true essence of Pongal : emotionally, socially and spiritually.
As a socially responsible manifestation, Society for the Confluence of Festivals in India endeavors to regenerate values in Indian society by introducing the beauty, grace and wisdom embodied in the various festivals of India, thereby preserving India's rich cultural heritage. We bring to front the unique customs, traditions and goodness of Indian festivals and this is what distinguishes the association known as the Society for the Confluence of Festivals in India. Through this organization, we hope to form a mutual respect for and foster the common bond that various Indian festivals share.
The great diversity of Indian religious beliefs is projected through the various festivals that are celebrated in India. They arise from the innate desire of man to seek diversion from humdrum activities that help in symbolizing, reflecting and enriching social life in a specific cultural setting. SCFI seeks to conserve and promote an awareness of this rich and diversified cultural treasure amongst the citizen of this country through various expositions that focus on the tradition of excellence, conversing the famous legends, rituals, mythology and philosophy of Indian Festivals and in turn facilitating an awareness of their deeper and subtler values.SCFI on Pongal Festival
