"Sankranti" gives the call for this total surrender. Sankranti is a kind of family festival. Yes. This is so. But the whole world is one family ("Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam"). The festival relates to the entire world. It is not confined to one's kith and kin. Sankranti is related to the entire mankind. Whether people realize it or not, Sankranti promotes in one and all a feeling of happiness.
