Cows are not unusual in India. Everyone knows. Only why are they yellow with blue horns ?
When the harvest is over, the people express their gratitude to the gods, the earth and their cattle. For four days, they celebrate with abandon and worship with devotion.
Pongal festivities continue through the first four days of the Tamil month of Thai (mid-January to mid-February). The houses are cleaned, painted and decorated. People wear new clothes and the cattle are gaily caparisoned with beads, bells and flowers-their horns painted and capped with gleaming metals.
Voilą that's why.
