Happy Onam

Onam is to Malayalees what Pongal is to Tamilians and Vaisakhi is to Punjabis - The Harvest Festival.

I find it very sad that there are only a very few malayalees who know anything about a harvest.

"Whatever imaginary world you've grown in/Whatever industrial society you've lived in/May the radiance, the fragrance,/The compassion of your village/Always be within you — / And a handful of konna flowers." - Vylopilli.

Happy Onam.
