Onam, the festival of harvest, brings with it truck loads of good cheer and prosperity. Besides being the biggest shopping season in Kerala, bonding with family and friends, trying out various delicious traditional recipes, dolling up in the ever classic white and gold fashion, and of course, spreading loads and loads of happiness, smiles and love, is what makes this festival all the more special.
This day brings out the best in every Malayalee woman. Not only is she dressed in the traditional kasavu saree, looking all gorgeous and lady-like, but also shows off her creative skills in the form of Onam pookalam designs (flower rangolis). She gathers all the auntyjis, mummyjis and cousins, and they sit to sort flowers and lay out beautiful pookalam designs and patterns, over some hot, juicy gossip, having some good ol’ girlie fun.
