Celebration of Onam
Onam is the biggest and the most important festival of the state of Kerala.. Maximum output with some simple thoughts...
The floral carpet, known as Onapookkalam, is made out of the gathered blossoms with several varieties of flowers of differing tints pinched up into little pieces to serve the decorator purpose. It is considered a work of art accomplished with a delicate touch and a highly artistic sense of tone and blending. In a similar manner North Indians make something called Rangoli which is made of powders of various colors. When completed, a miniature pandal, hung with little festoons is erected over it.Traditionally, Atthapookalams pookalam made on the Atham day included flowers endemic to Kerala and the Dashapushpam 10 flowers, but nowadays all varieties of flowers are used. Earthen mounds, which look somewhat like square pyramids, representing Mahabali and Vamana are placed in the dung plastered courtyards in front of the house along with the Pookalam, and beautifully decorated with flowers. In the recent years, the floral designs have evolved from the traditional circular shape to unique designs depicting different cultural and social aspects of Kerala life. All over Kerala, Pookalam competitions are a common sight on Onam day.
