Happy Onam - ഓണാശംസകള്‍!

It is that time of the year (again) when Kerala and the Malayalies across of the globe eagerly wait to welcome King Mahabali. They try their best to clean their homes.... decorate the courtyards with flower carpets... prepare mouthwatering feast... and wear new dresses...

And it is indeed that time of the year when Kerala unites as one regardless of caste and religion. It is this feature that draws me towards Onam more and that never fails to awe me.

Onam is a festival that brings long vacations and helps King Mahabali’s people to steal some time from their busy day today lives... This time gives an opportunity to sit back and relax... chatter and gossip... visit temples and get dressed up in traditional attire... And of course watch umpteen movies – In theatre may be and in television doubtlessly!

Anyways... I am not going to ramble on and on...
After all... I don’t want to take too much of your precious limited time...

So here I am wishing you all a very happy Onam...
Let happiness engulf you
Smiles embrace you
Love linger around you
And let the sunrise carrying the glory of success!
