Employed as a teacher in a government school, she doesn't get to stay at the farm every day (her standard of ideal).
We meet on Maattu Pongal day to attend to our animals and share a meal,” she says.
Come Maattu Pongal day, she will be at the farm, celebrating and worshipping her animals.
On the big day, Pongal would be prepared in eight mud pots on wooden fire.
On the last day — Kaanum Pongal, families would pack lunch and go to nearby places within the village.
