After an unfinished race, A got disappointed!
B could do podium finish and happy.
A: “I could not finish my race. But, with my stamina, I thought I must be able to finish it. May be my energy has come down or this is my limit?”
B:”Running to a specific finishing line is not just possible with stamina alone. You need to run with MIND. ”
A:”Run with MIND?”
B: “Yes, indeed! That can conquer anything… and it stretches your limits. It can bring breakthroughs to our life!”

Wife told me…. “So many muringakka(drumsticks)… I can’t reach. Can you help?”

First of all, Wish you all a very Happy Onam again….
Onam is a festival of lights? Perplexed? I would say, Onam is a festival that spreads lights of Happiness. All through out 10 days of Onam, people, irrespective of color, religion, wealth, all try to be happy! I am not sure, is there any other festival in the world “forces” people to be happy from the core theme of the festival.
Onam, the whole theme of the festival is being happy and that’s what the festival is for! That’s why in Kerala, there is a saying “Kaanam Vittum Onam Unnanam” and be happy for it! (It means that “One must have the Onam lunch even selling his property, to have so” and be happy that you could do it!)
Today is Onam Day 11 and is Thiruvonam!

Look at any pookkalam(floral decoration) for a while…you can feel the serenity of Onam. Onam days shower peace and happiness to the nature and minds. Every celebration is an occasion where we try to make others happy, along with that, we become happy(actually happier!). So, we can celebrate together only, not alone! Once we can cherish the moments of smiles and sharing, the celebration becomes meaningful. Those moments start bringing a feel of serenity and cares your mind…
Today is Onam Day 10! So, thiruvonam today?

Why do we celebrate Onam during Chingam (ചിങ്ങം)?
(Chingam is the first month of Malayalam Calendar or Kollavarsham. It comes during August-September months. Chingam 1 is considered as new year in Kerala.)
It is believed that the King Mahabali visits Kerala every year to see his people. It was like heaven and people were very happy when he ruled this land. Hence when he visits once a year, he wants to see his people in merry and his land prosperous. Chingam is usually the harvest time in Kerala and people will be happier during that. So Onam is also considered as harvest festival.
Today is Onam Day 9 and also Bakrid! Eid Mubarak!
