HAPPY ONAM


Wow, wow….. Onam is here :) and even though I am not in Kerala, or rather in India at all, I do feel the spirit of it this time even though I am not attending any programs and such.
My poor mom who was not feeling well made so much of an effort to make an Onam based Sadya yesterday for us and it was great indeed. The true fact is I just ate too much, then drank too much of the tasty Ada payasam she made and couldn’t move an inch. And ohh boy did I suffer for all that over eating… hehe I just couldn’t move around for another 5 hours and was feeling so sick…. But I wouldn’t mind having all those tasty stuff again. :)

So today is Thiruvonam and some of the family is gathering together at my uncle’s place to have the Onam sadhya at night and I do hope that I will be able to enjoy it as much as my mom’s cooking…

Anyway I do miss Kerala and the festival season and the hustle and bustle of the Onam so much even though I have never celebrated it much in life. It’s certainly a nostalgic season and its fun to see the whole state celebrating it keeping aside their religion and all other differences.

I guess having the Malayalam channels do help and it’s fun to see all the different Onam based programs and at least see the pookalam and sadhya and all that is going on in Kerala and feel as if I am there and seeing it all.


SO a very very HAPPY and Prosperous ONAM to all of you.
