Sh. Surinder Singh G.M. The Hotel Taj Chandigarh also briefed the invited Media Persons during Press Conference and said “Lohri is a popular festival, celebrated by people from the Punjab region of South Asia”.
Sh. Singh further explained “The origins of Lohri are many and link the festival to Punjab region. Many people believe the festival was originally celebrated on winter solstice day, being the shortest day and the longest night of the year”.
Sh. Singh further said “Traditionally Lohri is associated with the harvest of the Rabi Crops. The traditional time to harvest sugarcane crops is January and therefore, Lohri is seen by some to be a harvest festival. The general time to sow sugarcane is January to March and the harvesting period is between December to March with a 12 to 18 month cycle. Sugarcane products such as gurh and gachak are central to Lohri Celebrations, as are nuts which are harvested in January”.
Sh. Singh said with smiles “Over time, people have associated Lohri to the tale of Dulla Bhatti. The central theme of many Lohri songs is the legend of Dulla Bhatti, who lived in Punjab during the reign of Mughal EmperorAkbar. He was regarded as a hero in Punjab. Besides robbing the rich, he rescued poor Punjabi girls, being forcibly taken to be sold in slave market of the Middle East from theSandal Bar region. Their marriages were arranged to boys and provided them with dowries. Amongst two girls Sundri & Mundri (married in 1614) who gradually became theme of Punjab’ folklore. So some Lohri songs express gratitude to Dulla Bhatti”.
