Onam Pookalam (1/5)

Hello everybody..................... It's onam, our most interesting and beeutiful festival in kerala. The festival lasts for ten days and is linked to many elements of Kerala's culture and tradition. Intricate flower carpets, elaborate banquet lunch, snake boat races, Puli Kali, and the Kaikottikkali dance all play a part in the festival. Our first thing is to make Pookalam. It will be made of different flowers from our village. Puli means tiger, men will be playing in the form of tiger. Thiruvathira is only for women. And an elaborate lunch which will have thirteen different type of dishes............And it will start on 8th September............ And its only for Kerala................ ALL ARE WELCOME TO KERALA..............................
