A harvest festival of India, Lohri marks the first festival of the New Year. Makar Sankranti is celebrated on January 14 each year, but the dates vary. The Harvest Festival of India is also known for the delicious winter food dishes prepared at home during this time. Kavya Thapar’s love for traditional sweets has been revealed as she shares the names of the mithais she enjoys most during this festival.
Although I try to cut down my intake, sweets are one such thing that I cannot resist. The atmosphere of Lohri frees people from the worldly mundane routine and makes them relaxed, happy, and cheerful. Every year Lohri succeeds in bridging the social gap as people visit homes, distribute sweets, and greet each other regardless of their castes and social strata.
According to Kavya Thapar, her fondest memory of the festival is celebrating it as a child.
I have many wonderful childhood memories associated with Lohri and this festival. The food, games, song and the coming together of families will always be special to me.
