The Japanese have their cherry blossom parties; Maharashtrians and Gujjus have their Hurda or Ponk parties. Unfortunately, most urban dwellers have no clue what this is. With the exception of a few pockets in the city, the tender sorghum kernels are not even seen.

In this new video, we have tried to (re)introduce the huda or ponk. If you live anywhere near Pune or Surat, I urge you to go and discover this dying social tradition.

Note: This is My Jhola’s first video shot outdoors, and with a voiceover. Tell us what you think!
