Early in the morning I saw some of the neighbor ladies making beautiful rangoli and when I asked her the purpose she told me about Vishu which is the most important festival of kerala
Significance of vishu is felt through bounteous happiness that gets flown to all Keralites as they celebrate. It marks the end of the harvest season and herald of a new spring season to plant new saplings and venture new projects. On the first day of the Malayalese month of New Year, Vishu is observed. People open up their eyes in the morning as they offer Vishukanis to their god to catch the glimpse of the lucky sight. This lucky sight as believed bring good luck and prosperity to their lives for the rest of the year. Vishu is also significant to convey deepest human feelings amongst all to radiate good will and peace through music, dance and enjoying special feast of this day.(From
Happy Vishu to all my dear friends!!!
