  1. It is indeed a kind of broad-mindedness on the part of our Christian brothers and sisters to accommodate and celebrate our HINDU Festival “Pongal” in Churches and in other places. That compassion, that love, that forgiving nature, that gentleness, that patience, that humbleness shown by JESUS CHRIST are great to follow. Sure, they ever remain as the benchmarks of enviable good characters humans should possess. At the same time we too will reciprocate similarly.
