Oneness of the sun and diversity of the earth

Winter with its harsh climes and chilly nights begins to give way to what will be spring, as the sun shifts into the Northern skies – Uttarayan – and this is celebrated as

Lohri, Bhogi, Makar Sankranti, Magha, Bhogali Bihu, Khichri, Pongal.

Winter solstice marked variedly as the new year, Christmas, the night of Yelda/ Yalda celebrated across Iran, Syria Afghanistan all mark shift…of seasons…

…and seasons have to change, lets sing, celebrate what’s beautiful and change the seasons…

As we celebrate the change of seasons – we also share our fears and concerns about the imminent dangers of glimate change which threaten the very pattern of seasons .

As we celebrate the earth we also celebrate the farmer, the women and men who work with the earth, work tirelessly to make food available for every one and all who work with them, the artisan, the bulls, cattle and all living beings like the birds, bees who make agriculture and life itself possible.
