In Tamilnadu, agriculture is the predominant occupation of people in the villages.

Agriculture is in fact the most vibrant aspect of Tamil culture and is best reflected during Pongal. Pongal is the name of a dish which is made out of rice and jaggery. This name indicates the symbol of growth and prosperity. Further all the people participate in thanking sun god since food is the basis of life and sun god is the chief cause of the food they receive.
