19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
South Indian tradition

We, South Indians have a unique way of celebrating nature which gave us everything. We call the festival Pongal. A cow which helps a farmer to do his job is considered as god and celebrated. Kuthukulamban, aeruvalan , kangeyam are some breeds which are rarely seen today. I wish we could protect them more.
