Harmony of Onam (Onam Day 6)

onamday6

Harmony makes things more balanced and the best! Onam is a festival of harmony. For every malayali, irrespective of their religion, cast or color, Onam is close to their heart! It is like every flower and color adding to the harmony of the pookkalams (floral decorations) .

It is very interesting to have Bakrid, the festival of the sacrifice coming during Onam days. The story of Onam also reminds us a sacrifice from King Mahabali to ensure truth and commitment prevailed!

The core of every festival is nothing but harmony; living harmonious to the nature and fellow humans!

Today is Onam Day 6.

Today’s pookkalam was made by a spirited team work. All four contributed in various phases of the project 😉

It is a great feeling, once you achieve happiness together, that becomes celebration!

Keep Celebrating, Keep Smiling!


Are you still not enjoying the melody of Onam…? Glimpses of it here (English) for you! (You can find so many videos on Onam from internet!)

Elegance of Onam (Onam Day 5)

Everyday pookkalam (floral decoration) adds to the elegance of Onam festival all throughout 10days from Atham to Thiruvonam. Onam is a story of truth,  kindness and commitment.  It reminds us that happiness is a result of selflessness. It unveiled through the story of King Mahabali. For me,  he is a superhero who amazed the world with his judicious and compassionate care to his countrymen.  He could bring and sustain truth and harmony in his land,  and finally he taught us how one should be committed to his words without any fear….
