Come on the 15th to celebrate the Pongal Festival at the French Pavilion

This Tuesday, 15th of January, the Ilaignarkal Education Center, the Mohanam Cultural Center and the French Pavilion are inviting everyone to participate in the Pongal Festival Celebrations. This echoes an old French tradition, still present today, the festival of the « moisson ». These festivities date back to time immemorial and remind us of how powerful our ancestral values are as vectors of gathering and cohesion.
It will be the opportunity for the two cultures to exchange and to realize once again that they are not so different, and that their differences can only be mutual and collective enrichment.

Event Highlights:

• Exhibition of Indo-French Relations
• Educational and thought provoking talk about Tamil-French culture by eminent scholars
• Traditional Tamil and French Games
• Song and dance performances
• Food, handicrafts and artisan stalls
• Traditional Pongal offering with mixed vegetable stew

Date: Tuesday, 15th January 2019
Time: 11:00 A.M. to 03:00 P.M.
Venue: French Pavilion, opposite to Visitors Centre, Auroville
