On this occasion, Holika Pujan is performed. It is believed in our ancient Indian tradition that this poojan takes away all the clouds and clusters of bad thoughts in mind. India is a agriculture dominated nation. This season all the harvest is taken out and the land is actually left for sun bath ! Holika poojan is a symbol of that. This nourishes the agriculture land and makes it ready for further harvest.
