Kanum Pongal, also called Thiruvalluvar Day

 The fourth day of the three-day Pongal celebrations is called Kaanum Pongal. In few places this day is also known as Thiruvalluvar Day. It is dedicated to the sun god, Surya

On this day, people travel to see other family members and the younger members of the family pay homage to the elders, and the elders thank them by giving token money. In cities like Chennai, many people with their families go out for picnics and all the tourist places are crowded on this day. So Team number 135 went to the Marina Beach in Chennai which was crowded with hundreds of thousands of people. It was a fun outing and a wonderful way to end the Pongal Celebrations.
