Here are some impressive expressions on Pongal Festival in verse. You can also use this as your greeting message in your Pongal best wishes card.
Pot Rice to Sun God
Sugarcane to cow and ox
Sweet rise to you and me
Good milk to friends and family
Thai pongal! To wish or not to wish?
Pongal is overflow in abundance or with heat
Abundance is aim but not abundant Eelam heat!
Neither sacrifices today for tomorrow nor tomorrow for today
Off the heat in Tamil Eelam life must go on
On this joyous day let thoughts be translated to deeds
Weed out the unwanted speed up the wanted
So that next year Pongal Festival will be real.
Long before metamorphosis of rocks
We matured Tamils have lived some say
Rice with farming appeared in the land
Life with a code of conduct man founded
Was looking for green pastures
Journeyed on foot then – later
Words and language appeared in the world
Tamils provided culture and made the world glow.
