Updated on July 17, 2011

Onam Photo Gallery

Another Onam is around the corner and the nolstalgia is in the minds of every keralite who is away from home. Lets go through the special onam photo gallery below. Wishing you all a very happy and prosperous Onam in advance.......

As Onam is one of the unique festivals in the world as it is celebrated by all the keralites in the world irrespective of any caste or religion. Lets hope and pray for a Mavelinadu again. Below is an english version of famous onam chant.. 'maveli nadu vanidum kaalam'

When Maveli ruled the land, All the people had equality.
And people were joyful and merry;They were all free from harm.
There was neither anxiety nor sickness,There were no lies,
There was neither theft nor deceit,And no one was false in speech either.
Measures and weights were right;No one cheated or wronged his neighbor.
When Maveli, our King, ruled the land,All the people formed one casteless race.

Significance of Onam

Onam has many special significances. It is the celebration of past history as the day of visit of Mahabali, the legend to kerala.It is the celebration of the harvest, tied with the memory of the golden age of prosperity. It is believed that during those days the whole of chingam was celebrated as Onam season. After the rain-drenched month of karkidakam, chingam is a welcome month for people in Kerala. The festival is the indication of the start of harvest season. Onam is celebrated with traditional flavors with folk games, traditional artforms such as Kadhakali, Thiruvathirakali, Pulikali etc., family get-togethers, gifting of clothes called onakkodi. Onam is celebrated with pookkalam (flower decoration) and sadya (Kerala vegetarian feast).In pookkalam, the flowers are decoratively arranged on the floor and clay models of Mahabali is placed in the centre to welcome Mahabali.
