History & Culture

ONAM CELEBRATIONS: Onam is a cultural and social festival native to Kerala but celebrated over most of South India. This is a harvest festival and closely associated with creativity. Apart from the many social events in this 10 day feast, floral carpets known as Pookolam are made out of the gathered blossoms with differing tints to design and decorate patterns on floor, particularly at entrances and temple premises like a flower mat. The centre of the Pookolam is lit with a lamp which symbolises as a vanquisher of darkness and a mark of prosperity. Onam was celebrated in TII and a Pookolam competition held. The association of these floral carpets to Takasago was also a criteria on which the best design was ajudged.
