With the Poongal festival or the celebration of the harvest, on 15 January, Tamil families paint their houses freshly and offer visitors a piece of sweet sugar-cane. Rather sticky and you need a pair of strong teeth to rip of and chew on the pulp that you spit out afterwards like they do.

The photo was taken at sunset as a farmer brings in the crop on that same Thirukalikundram road.
