Melody of Onam…(Onam Day 8)

onamday8

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!

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….

Today is Onam Day 5. (08Sep2016 😉

ഓണം വരവായ്… (Onam Day 1)

ജന്മനാട്ടിൽ നിന്നും അകലെയെങ്കിലും,

പതിവുപോലെ പൂക്കളം ഇടാൻ തുടങ്ങി.

മുറ്റത്തെ പൂക്കളിൽ നിന്നും തുടങ്ങി….

ഓരോ പൂ വയ്കുമ്പോഴും ഓർമ്മകൾ പലതും പറഞ്ഞു കൊണ്ടിരുന്നു…

ഓർമ്മകൾക്ക് നന്ദി…  പൂക്കൾക്കും!
