Untitled[edit]

what is pongal?

  • And is it celebrated by all but predominantly by Dravidians, or what?

--Klehti 23:02, 14 Jan 2005 (UTC)

It should be clearer now. --ashwatha 02:07, 15 Jan 2005 (UTC)

I removed the phrase "Aryans a.k.a. Hindus", because the "Aryan race" in India, while predominantly Hindu, also has Buddhists, Jains and other denominations in it. --ashwatha 08:02, 15 Jan 2005 (UTC)

Kaanum pongal[edit]

I am not sure the follwing text in the article about kaanum pongal is correct

... youths used to gather at river banks to view and select their future life partners, but that practice has declined.

A few external websites refer to a brother-sister ritual on this day, but none about choosing lifepartners or anything like that. Therefore, I remove the sentence. If this is indeed a fact, please add it back with proper references. ~ srini 05:59, 7 November 2006 (UTC)

--Pongal seems to be spelled wrong in Tamil on the front page

Pictures[edit]

The picture is very blurred and does not give a clear view. There are many non-copyright pictures at flickr. We could use one of them. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 155.69.5.234 (talk)

Pongal is also a food[edit]

As fas as I know, Pongal is also the name of a food item in Andhra Pradesh made from rice and pulses. Probably this should be mentioned in the article. 130.203.202.7 21:26, 19 March 2007 (UTC)

WikiProject Dravidian civilizations[edit]

There is nothing called Dravidian civilizations. There is Indic civilization of which the Dravidian element is very significant.--Dipendra2007 (talk) 01:28, 14 January 2010 (UTC)

Reverting unexplained deletion[edit]

I have reverted an unexplained deletion (No talk page, no edit summary) of referenced text, the first edit of a new editor. ie. "Tamils refer to Pongal as Tamizhar Thirunal " --220.101.28.25 (talk) 08:03, 10 March 2010 (UTC)

OTD[edit]

This article is currently tagged for needing more references, and according to the rules at Wikipedia:Selected anniversaries, must be omitted from the Main Page on January 15, 2012, unless the issue can be addressed. There are a little over 12 days to go, so hopefully that gives editors enough to time to take care of this. Thanks! howcheng {chat} 20:05, 2 January 2012 (UTC)

The name[edit]

The name is Thai Pongal however there are some Tamils in Thailand, and the name of the month Thai is confusing because the word Thai is referred to the people and the language of Thailand 99.229.41.79 (talk) 01:51, 23 July 2012 (UTC)

-I have never heard of the "Thai". Everybody I know just says Pongal. I asked a bunch of South Indians I know, and nobody has heard of "Thai". --76.100.233.222 (talk) 22:45, 14 January 2013 (UTC)

மொழி மாசடைதல்[edit]

மொழி மாசடைதல் , இன்றைய நாகரிக வாழ்கையில் ஒரு மொழியில் மற்றொரு மொழியை கலந்து பேசுவது என்பது ஓர் நாகரிகமாகவே மாறிவிட்டது. ஒன்றை நம் தெளிவாக புரிந்து கொள்ளவேண்டும் " அங்கிலம் என்பது அறிவல்ல மொழி " . — Preceding unsigned comment added by Subiraja (talkcontribs) 10:02, 9 January 2014 (UTC)
