Amul Girl is not only dressed perfectly for the occasion, but also seen making pookalam design. Now for the uninitiated, pookalam means flower rangoli, an art form originating in the Indian subcontinent, in which patterns are created on the floor or the ground using quartz powder materials such as coloured rice, coloured sand or flower petals. For Onam, people use flowers, to make pookalam designs to adorn their houses.

Apart from Kasavu saree and pookalam designs, it is the fun tagline that sums up the feeling of celebrating Onam. It is ‘Add Swadya to Sadya’ in direct reference to the famous Onam Sadhya, a lavish feast that’s very close to every Malayali’s heart. A typical Sadhya consists of 24-28 dishes, mostly vegetarian, being served on a huge banana leaf.

Onam celebrations take place to honour the return of King Mahabali, the greatest ruler of the land. The love and devotion the mighty king had for his subjects remain unmatched, and this is why Lord Vishnu in his Vamana form granted him the boon of returning to earth and visit houses of his subjects once a year. We wish everyone celebrating this beautiful festival, a very Happy Onam or Onam Ashamsakal!
