Are you hearing the melody of Onam…? If you travel through Kerala these days, you should be able to hear…esp..tea shops in villages or junctions where pookkalams are there.
There are so many sweet melodies on Onam in Malayalam. If you search in google/youtube for “Onam Songs”, you will realize that, Onam Songs are an integral part of Malayalam Music.
Whoever lives away from Kerala, cannot listen to them without nostalgic memories of their home, childhood and loved ones back in Kerala!
[I have added one of my fav Onam Songs Album link at the end of this blog]
Today is Onam Day 8.
As I mentioned in the previous blogs on Onam, the pookkalam(floral decoration) incrementally becomes bigger and bigger each day. Flowers become limited (unless you plan to buy it! 🙂 , also limited choices! Today we went with a bag during our daily jogging. While coming back, we could ‘collect’ some flowers. Thanks to neighbours. 😉
Even if limited flowers, choices and whatever way you put it, end of it…,it looks good and gives a nice breezing feeling!
Enjoy the melody of Onam; Be Happy; Keep Smiling!
One of my fav Onam Songs Album:
- Album: Thiruvona Kaineettam(1998)
- Songs here
- The songs – “Villinmel” , “Para Niraye” & “Poomullakkodi” – shares the the beauty of Onam!
- The song – ‘Aaro Kamazhthivecha’ (by Yesudas) – is really touching…!
- Onam Trademark Song : Maveli Naadu Vaneedum Kaalam
