Last year I posted an article i happened to see in ‘The Hindu’. And of all the good things about Onam, the laughing joke – The Pookalam.
Every year, in every educational institutions in Kerala, students celebrate Onam to the highest with songs, games and the important of all – the pookalam. Everywhere, the story is same.
The day comes up, apparently the most interesting part is the way things happen that day.
Most of the institutions now conduct pookalam as a competition. And that itself tear apart the idea of Onam. Now some bunch of people have challenged themselves to get a place worth nothing. Since the honor and other egos are at stake, to increase the so called beauty of pookalam, the size is increased and hence the amount of money goes up. I think Keralates love to give money to the tamilians more than any time of the year. Because, during Onam, apparently, some part of Tamil Nadu too are celebrating. 😉 You know what I am talking about.
And that’s how every single Onam pass by. But now you ask me, if I will keep away from all this, since I have criticized it a lot. Mm.. well, Nope. Because, Its not about the waste of money or how astonishingly stupid people can be. Its about the time you spend with them and the fun you have. Its about the sarcastic dialogues, Its about the pranks, Its about the endless smiles, happiness and laughs. And all of them are limitless. mesmerizing memories.’
World, Happy Onam!!
