The Cultural Significance of Black Sarees during Makar Sankranti

In some regions of India, the cultural significance of wearing a black saree during Makar Sankranti is rooted in mythology and traditions. This practice is linked to the reverence for Bhishma from the Mahabharata, who chose to leave his mortal life during the auspicious transition of the sun into Uttarayana. The black attire is considered a mark of respect for his sacrifice and dedication to Dharma. Some rituals also incorporate black sesame seeds, symbolising the pursuit of soul purification.
