To all my international friends , onam is the traditional festival of happiness,prosperity,and unity to describe onam in the simplest possible way.there is a legend behind it. check this out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Onam:)
Onam ,then was a beautiful festival that we, especially cousins used to immensely enjoy, holidays after the exams, the reunion, celebrations, the quest for flowers around the houses and neighbourhoods ,big colourful flower carpet laid in the porticos, the swing, songs, and of course the traditional food!!!wow sweet memories….. happiness and nothing elseJ
Onam now has shrunken ..reunion-has become impossible, few phone calls wishing “happy onam”,no great celebrations, a small flower carpet with the flowers bought from the market and instant food:(…
Well, I guess atleast the spirit is immortalJ J
HAPPY ONAM TO ALL !!!!!!
