Makar Sankranti - Til & Gur Fest

Sesame seeds, known as Til, symbolize Til Sankranti, revered for their link to Lord Yama, the God of Death and this is why they are also known as the 'seeds of immortality’

As the sun heads north, this celebration uplifts the nation from winter's grasp. Til offers warmth, bone strength, hair nourishment, and skin health with its protein, calcium, iron, and magnesium. Paired with jaggery, it aids digestion, purifies blood with iron, and fights aging with zinc and selenium. Together, Til and Gur fortify immunity, safeguarding against seasonal illnesses.
