Onam greetings to all of you. Onam is a festival of Kerala, which is celebrated by all irrespective of their cast, colour and financial status. This is the time when most of the Keralaites get together, a time for family reunions. The most important things about Onam are the onakkali (a form of group dance), onapoovidal (flower arrangement) and ona sadya (a luxuroius and tasty vegetarian lunch).
When the power transfer was happening from the British to the Local authorities (Nehru), Gandhi was noted for his absence. He was busy fasting and praying at Calcutta, becuase he was deeply hurt by the partition of India into India and Pakistan. I think, most of our so called leaders have a great lesson to learn from Gandhi. A burning love for his country and countrymen. Power comes later. Dear Gandhi, I love you !
Blogging from Dubai, enroute to Al Ain. Will be back to India on 26th morning, to celebrate Onam!
