Queue For Pongal Rice

People waiting in a queue in Jaffna to buy 1kg red rice and and 1kg
brown sugar for Thai Pongal (festival) on 15.1.07. January is the first pongal for farmers day where they prepare sweet rice and share with neighbors and
relatives annually. This year pongal celebrations are not celebrated
happily as there is a shortage of rice and brown sugar.
