Makar Sankranti, or simply Sankranti, is being celebrated today. It is a festival dedicated to Lord Surya (Sun God) and marks the sun's transit into Makara (Capricorn) raashi (zodiac sign). It is one of the few Hindu festivals which is aligned with the solar cycle. Many people fly kites on the occasion. The festival is so big that there have been many Bollywood songs made around it. While some of them played an itegral part to the film's plot, many were used to show romance between the actors. So without further ado, here’s a look at a few of them.
