The celebration of harvest festival ,Sankranti has begun in Vijayawada on a grand note. Haridas, Gangireddu, cock and bull fights, and rangoli, which are the symbols of Sankranti are being witnessed everywhere . Even though the old tradition is fast dying with the new generation adopting other means, Haridas and Gangireddu activities are still being encouraged. Even though there is a ban on cock fight , a few interior villages still witness this age-old practice.
