Indian President Ram Nath Kovind greeted citizens of the country on the occasion of Lohri, Makar Sankranti, Pongal, Bhogali Bihu, Uttarayan and Paush Parva.
Highlighting the unity in diversity that defines our country, the President said that these festivals underline the organic relationship with nature.
"Greetings to all on Lohri, Makar Sankranti, Pongal, Bhogali Bihu, Uttarayan & Paush Parva. Highlighting the unity in diversity that defines our country, these festivals underline our organic relationship with nature. May the festivals bring prosperity and happiness to everyone," the Rashtrapati Bhavan tweeted on January 13.
The festivals of Lohri, Makar Sankranti, Pongal, Bhogali Bihu, Uttarayan and Paush Parva, mark the harvesting season of crops as the winter season ends and ushers in the spring.
Megastar Amitabh Bachchan has extended heartfelt Lohri greetings to everyone.
Taking to Instagram, Big B posted an animated version of the famous Punjabi folk song -- 'Sundri Mundri Hoye'. The 'Don' star also prayed for everyone's 'peace' and 'safety'.
"Happy Lohri..peace calm and safety," he wrote.
Big B knows how to make festivals special for people. Not only Holi is incomplete without his song 'Rang Barse' but the harvest festival is also less enjoyable without playing his track 'Lo Aa Gayi Lohri Ve' from the film 'Veer Zara'.
