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!

[I have added one of my fav Onam Songs Album link at the end of this blog]

Today is Onam Day 8.

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!)
