It is worth noting that the 28 days correspond to 28 days of Margazhi month in Tamil and one extra day in Marghazhi was used in preparation for the Pongal,Indira Vizha Festiy.This is exactly the Makara Sankranti day,and this was celebrated by ancient Tamils with pom
And even acknowledging that PETA is often the first to rescue pets when heat waves and hurricanes hit, that doesn’t change the fact that, at one of its shelters, it kills 84 percent of supposedly “unadoptable” animals within 24 hours of their arrival…PETA’s cash donation to the terrorist Earth Liberation Front..The group euthanized (killed) more than 1,900 animals in 2003 alone — that’s over 85 percent of the animals it received. In fact, from July 1998 through the end of 2003, PETA killed over 10,000 dogs, cats, and other “companion animals” at its Norfolk, Virginia headquarters. That’s more than five animals every day.

‘Vaadai Vizha or Vadavazhi Vizha, the festival of welcoming the Lord Surya back to home, as He turns northward, celebrated on December 21/22 (Winter Solstice) (the sixth day of Panmizh[Maargazhi]). It is sung about in Akanauruanthology.

is this not fleecing?
Why consumer groups are silent on this issue?
I saw a Talk show in Vijay TV Neeya Naana where the Hoteliers met with the customers for a discussion.
And they offer you what they think you like, never an authentic Tamil Nadu Cuisine except Idli Vada Ponga and Poori (which has become South Indian now( and a few other items)
Whys no specific Tamil specialties?
I can name quite a few.
Think about it,
