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.
There are many traditional games that are played during onam. Pulikali, thalapanthu kali, uriyadi… are some of them. Every village has some special game which adds more entertainment and fun to Onam days. Enjoyment and being happy forgetting all your frets are the highlights during Onam days.
Today is Onam Day 7.
Today we got a very special item for our pookkalam (floral decoration)… Manjaadi (Red Lucky Seeds) !! 🙂
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….
