Village vignettes - Bhogi fires

The bhogi fire lit before each home predawn on the day of Bhogi, before Sankranthi. Old broomsticks, and old winnows, and old baskets are consigned to the flames. As the old is burned, a new year begins.

And the bamboo weavers sell baskets and winnows anew to all the families, and celebrate.
