Malaysian experiences a special Onam festival in Kerala before pandemic




My husband and his friends used to make a yearly trip to Kerala in India for the Calicut Medical College Alumni Meet. In 2019, the gathering was held during the festive Onam season in September. I was happy about this because I had always wanted to be part of the Onam celebrations in Kerala.

Onam is one of a few major festivals in Kerala. It heralds the beginning of a new year for locals, and celebrates the year’s new harvest. It also commemorates the visit of the legendary King Mahabali.
