Makar Sankrant Creativity
In states like Maharashtra, which are located in the western part of India, people exchange tilgul (made from sesame seeds and jaggery).While exchanging tilgul as tokens of goodwill, people greet each other saying, 'Tilgul ghya, goad goad bola (Accept these tilguls and speak sweet words).'This custom represents the thought that we should forget the past ill-feelings and hostilities, resolve to speak sweetly and remain friends.Married women folk apply haldi kumkum on each other's foreheads.
