Pongal history

Legends say that Pongal celebration date back to Sangam age (200BC-200AD) and has found mention in puranas. According to one of the legends associated with Pongal, Lord Shiva had a bull called Basava who he sent on earth to spread the message that humans should have oil massage and bath every day and eat once a month. Basava instead told humans to do the opposite - eat every day and take an oil bath once a month. Punished by Lord Shiva, Basava was sent to earth to help humans by ploughing their field and meet their daily food requirements. This is how cattle came to be associated with Pongal.
