People's Pongal 2007



I would like to invite all bloggers and visitors of blog to visit a special website (www.mypongal.com) that has been created by a few good friends of mine to promote People’s Pongal which would be organized on 15th January 2007 at the University of Malaya.

For your information, People’s Pongal have been organized since 2003 and started as a small event at the Sree Veerakathy Vinayagar Alayam with a participation of 320 families.

People’s Pongal was organized with an intention to promote the strong culture and tradition that belongs to all Malaysian Indian – I saw Pongal as an event that would not only bring all Malaysian Indian together but it could also bring an Unity amongst all Malaysian.

Pongal is a harvest festival. We thank the SUN, EARTH and the FARMERS. In Malaysia, I am sure you will agree with me that not many Malaysian Indians are involved in paddy farming. That does not mean we don’t celebrate Pongal, we do, infact we made it look more like a religious festival.

So I and my friends realized that we have a festival that would show the generosity and the sincere thoughts of the Malaysian Indian’s thus People’s Pongal was created.

It has been 5 years we have been organizing this event and we have won several awards;


  • Malaysia Book of Records 2003, 2004 and 2005 – for organizing the Largest Pongal Festival in Malaysia

  • Institute of Public Relations of Malaysia’s Crystal Award for the best Multi Racial Events.
  • IPRM also gave me an award for creating People’s Pongal.

    Last year we organised People’s Pongal in Menara KL. We had more than 500 participants and more than 3,000 visitors witnessing and enjoying the celebration of this festival.

    We are now taking Pongal to another height. I guess, we would be the only country in the World to welcome visitors to a Pongal Ceremony…….YES; I will share this information with all of you soon.

    In the meantime, if you want to participate or help us please visit Pongal’s website and register your interest.
