Keralites celebrate their biggest festival ‘Thiruvonam’ across the globe today

Keralites all over the world celebrated Thiruvonam today, the most important day of the Onam festival. With Covid 19 cases showing no signs of abatement, the celebrations remained highly subdued.

For the second consecutive year, Kerala celebrated Onam in the midst of a pandemic. The festival usually brings forth a multitude of colours and flavours, but this time, the exuberance and grandeur associated with it was clearly missing. The warnings by the state Health authorities made people to stay away from crowds and massive celebrations. Many confined themselves to their homes. The festivities at the Thrikkakara Temple in Kochi, associated with the legend of Mahabali, remained low key.  The Onam feast, a regular feature of the festival held at the temple was cancelled due to the prevailing Covid 19 situation. While celebrations remained subdued, people fervently hope  that the situation will change for the better during the days ahead.
