Lohri Festival

The festival of Lohri, which is celebrated by Punjab and other states of India, marks the end of winter season and is traditionally believed to welcome the sun to the northern hemisphere. Observed a night before Makar Sankranti, this occasion involves a Puja Parikrama around the bonfire with prasadam. Many people believe the day commemorates the passing of the winter solstice, while many others believe that it is a harvest festival.

The Festival starts with the lighting up a bonfire by the Hon'ble Chancellor Sir, Dr. Sandeep Bakshi, Executive Director, Dr. Preeti Bakshi, Director SIILAS, Prof. D.S. Bhatia and other dignitaries. It was attended and celebrated by all the faculty members, staff and students, with much enthusiasm.
