Bogi is the first day of the four-day Pongal festival. Tamils discard old things and concentrate on new things causing change or transformation. Bogi marks the end of the year's accounts and the beginning of new accounts on the first day of the harvest festival Pongal or Tamil New Year. Arun Krishnamurthy, founder of Environmentalist Foundation of India and Suchie Vijayakumar share their views on Bogi. Produced by RaySel.
