#THREAD: In the run-up to #MakarSankranti those involved in the making and selling of colourful kites and manja in Hyderabad were excited to start afresh.

But this time, ‘patangula panduga’ has not turned out the way the traders wanted. | @rahulvpisharody…
Mohanlal has been selling kites since he was 10. Now 75, he says COVID-19 pandemic, months-long lockdown, and the lack of sufficient modes of inter-state transport have added to a shortage of kites in the market and pushed the prices up. Image
Craftsmen usually start making kites meant for sale during Sankranti soon after the end of the previous year’s festival making it a round-the-year activity. In 2020, craftsmen started making kites only in June after the lockdown was eased. Image

Shubh #Makarsankranti to all.
Surya Devta movedinto Makar, a sign ruled by Saturn.
This is also the day when planet of electricity & technology which ws in backward motion since last 5 months hs turned direct again.
And with that few TECH GIANTS hv landed in hot soup. 😁
2/3 I did not knw how to interpret this transition of saturn when it squares the planet of TECHNOLOGY.
Bt now that i see tech giants being cornered, I think the picture is getting clear now.

We are in an "awakening" mode.

~freedom struggles
~ hopes & wishes
~Big corporates
~out of box solutions (which can be really weird)
~Government establishments

Above given themes will be triggered in next 2.5 years. Bt in next 8 yrs we will see an improvement in how humans treat mother earth and ANIMALS.
Animal "freedom"/ Mother earth will also b a theme.

Many of you would have made the plan for the celebration. However, there will be very few who know the real meaning of #MakarSankranti.

For us, Makar Sankranti is all about Kite Flying. But, if you would dive deep into this subject, you will find plenty of hidden gems.
While most of our festival takes its basis on the Lunar Cycle. #Makar Sankranti is perhaps one of the few Hindu festivals that takes its basis on the Solar Cycle.
The second interesting facts about Makar Sankranti is that it always takes place on JAN 14. So, it is the only festival of Hindu that matches with the Gregorian Calendar.

🚩 The Science Behind #MakarSankranti -Today - The Day when Surya Dev moves from Winter solstice towards Summer solstice marking Uttarayana 🚩Vitamin D is made by the body with sunlight.Sesame seeds (Til ) have the highest calcium (975mg per 100g). Milk has 125mg only🚩1/4
🚩2. The body is capable of storing Vitamin D up to a year, and use the reserves.
Lastly, the body is capable of getting its Vitamin D reserves full with 3 full days of sunlight.
The best quality of sunlight is at the end of winter & beginning of summer 🚩
🚩 3. Now join the dots,& See how wise our sages were in ancient India.

Was CHRISTMAS Ancient #MakarSankranti ?

#Thread - Read Slowly for Surprises !
Judge Yourself
2.UTTARAYAN is NOT same as MAKAR Sankranti

Uttarayan => SUNRISE Will shift from Lowest Point in South East till Highest Point Northwards

STARTS: Next Day of Shortest Day 21/22Dec
TILL- Longest Day- 21Jun

This Transition of South to North =Uttarayan 6 Months
2b. Uttaryan is Caused by Tilt 23.5 degree of Earth + its Revolution around sun

Over Years
Shortest Day Varies from 20-23 Dec
So Uttarayan hops from 21 to 24 Dec
