"The customary sugar jewellery, halwyache dagine, is sugar candies made out of roasted sesame seeds combined with sabudana and sugar powder.
Most excited among them are this year's newlyweds and new parents who will be celebrating their very first Makar Sankranti adorned in fineries and the conventional 'Halwyache Dagine' or sugar jewellery, amid hollers of 'tilgul ghya, goad goad bola'.
The week following Makar Sankranti will be marked by haldi-kumkum celebrations at various households, where Maharashtrian ladies will apply auspicious colours on each other and exchange sweets and gifts.
Even men wear black on Sankranti."
"While the Maharashtrian community will celebrate with tilgul and kites, the Punjabi community finished up royally with a night full of dancing around bonfires and getting decked up in vivid colours of the state.
