Mukkanuma is the final and fourth day of Makara Sankranti festival in Andhra Pradesh. In 2022, Mukkanuma date is January 16.
Mukkanuma is celebrated on the next day of Kanuma. It is celebrated as Kaanum Pongal in Tamil Nadu. Kanuma and Mukkanuma are also known as ‘Pasuvula Panduga’ (Festival of Cattle) in Telugu.
Pasuvula Puja (worshipping cattle) is the main ritual on Mukkanuma. Kodi pandaalu (cockfight) and eddula pandaalu (bullock cart races) are the blood sports (a gamble of crores of rupees) associated with Sankranti in some Coastal district of Andhra Pradesh. Hindupad condemns this type of fake rituals and request all to avoid such violence on animals.
