Celebs share their fondest Makar Sankranti memory

Rajesh Kumar:  

I will be making a memory this time in Makar Sankranti. Apart from flying kites, people in Bihar have poha with curd on this day and tilkutSo, this year, I will be having my farm-grown poha with curd. Chuda-dahi is famous in Bihar, and I will be having it this year on my farm in Mumbai. I am going to make a memory this year. 


Mohit Daga:  

I always look forward to celebrating Makar Sankranti at home. My fondest memory would be to having homemade til ke ladoo and flying kites on our terrace. Sometimes we would have a competition in our locality too. On this day, I also offer my prayers to the goddess Saraswati. 


Nitin Kumar Gupta:  

I have always flown kites on the rooftop of my joint family home with my huge gang of cousins. Also, I remember always cribbing when unknown kites would snap off my kite and then swearing revenge, and later failing to do so. I was never a good kiter. Getting my first kite to take off was an exhilarating experience though. I think that was my memorable Makar Sankranti memory. 


Kavitta Verma:  

I have lived a hostel life mostly, so I remember on this day we used to relish a kheer made especially on this day. My mother would also treat us with halwa. And we used to offer prayers to the Sun God. Makar Sankranti has always been about good food for me. As a kid, my mornings would start with sweet kheer and tilgul, and then we will have spicy curries during lunch. 


Aditi Patankar-Gupta:  

The smell of jaggery and til always takes me back to my childhood days. My fondest Makar Sankranti memory would be making tilgud with my family and distributing it to my neighbors. And wishing them well. As a kid, I would also enjoy fly kites, I was never really good at it, but it was fun to watch other kids run after kites. 


Sharad Malhotra:  

I love tilkut and chikkis and on Makar Sankranti, I would have as many as I can. My fondest Makar Sankranti memory would be when my mom organized a brunch for us and our neighbors on our terrace. We had a kite flying competition too, but none of us won, guys living on a different street than ours were successful in cutting our kites. It was very upsetting at that time but it became a memory that always makes us laugh. 


Kettan Singh:  

My fondest memory of Makar Sankranti is falling from my neighbor’s terrace. Since childhood, I am fond of flying kites and I used to get up every year around 4:30 am and get ready. We used to keep everything ready. Like Manja and kites, and from 5:30 am I and all my cousins go to the terrace and fly kites the whole day. Also, we used to cut each other’s kites. The family lunch with Dal Bati Churma was a special attraction to all of us.
