         Ellu Bella - Sankranti

The celebrations of Makara Sankranti in Karnataka is marked by preparing and distributing "ellu-bella" (ಎಳ್ಳು ಬೆಲ್ಲ)and Sakkare-achhu (sugar candy molds) to friends and relatives. People greet with the words  "Ellu bella thindu, Olle Maathu Aadu", meaning "Eat sesame seeds and jaggery and speak only good". The significance of this exchange is that sweetness should prevail in all the dealings.
