He says: “The joyous festivals of Lohri and Makar Sankranti are here. These festivals with their agrarian roots signify the end of chilly winters and a move towards warmer, sunny days. It is truly a happy time for all of us. Sesame seeds (til) are an integral part of these festivals as they are used to make special snacks during these festivals. The snacks made out of these seeds carry with them the lingering remembrance of our childhood festivities.”
The ‘Sirf Tum’ actor reveals being a foodie and shared how he use to have a good time the pageant throughout childhood.
He mentioned: I’m a foodie, and meals is a vital half of Lohri and Makar Sankranti celebrations. I bear in mind once I was a child, a typical Lohri day would begin with my associates in my hometown going from door to door asking for conventional sweets equivalent to gajak, chikki, jaggery, popcorn, sesame seeds (til), rewari and peanuts.”
“Then because the night time falls, household and neighbours use to sit down round a holy bonfire having fun with Lohri-special snacks. I bear in mind, as children, we used to dine on til ke ladoo and gajak on the times round Makar Sankranti. They have been all handmade stuff and used to final for weeks. Taste and aroma of til could be very refined but it stays with you all of your life. And curiously they appear thrilling solely within the month of January not around the yr,” he adds.
