The contest started off with a gathering of cows from in and around Bangalore on an early Monday afternoon.

The winner sauntered away with attractive cash prizes like: Rs, 4000/- for the winner, the first runner up won Rs. 3000/- and the second runner up won Rs. 2000/-.

Commenting on the occasion, Mr. Romen Sood, Executive VP and Regional Director South and East, Radio Mirchi said "Radio Mirchi is rooted in the culture of this city, identifying with traditions that mark any important festival. Our initiative 'Rang De Sankranthi' is aimed at adding colour and a streak of uniqueness to the cheer & gaiety that marks Makara Sankranthi celebrations in the city."

The Makara Sankranti celebrations in Bangalore kick started on Jan 11, 2007 with a Rangoli competition called "Rang De Sankranthi" which was held at different pockets of the city. A traditionally decorated 'Canter' was also going around the city spreading cheer by distributing Pongal, Sugarcane and the traditional "Yellu Biru".
