Indore: Sindhi community celebrated Lal Loi on Wednesday after sunset. The festival is an annual celebration to welcome the sun in the northern hemisphere. It was an eco-friendly Lal Loi (Lohri) as cow dung cakes were used instead of wooden planks for the bonfire to celebrate the festival. “Focus of Lal Loi should be on getting rid of old belongings and cleansing the mind in readiness for Tirmoor festival, which is celebrated a day after Lal Loi,” India Sindhu Sabha general secretary (Indore) Naresh Fudwani said. Tirmoor is the Sindhi name for Makar Sankranti, which is about worshipping Lord Sun, flying kites.
