Keralites celebrated the festive season of Onam in their homes this year. The ten-day long festival which started on Atham asterism in the month of August was marked by subdued and low-key celebrations in the homes of the Keralites. No public events were organised on account of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the event was celebrated following social distancing norms by the people.
The state festival of Kerala, Onam is the biggest extravaganza which sees travellers from far and wide arriving to experience the rare sights and flavours of God’s Own Country. According to mythology, Onam celebrates the homecoming of King Mahabali when he arrives from the nether world to visit his subjects once every year. The government organises a host of programmes on all the days in all the 14 districts of the state to spread cheer on the celebratory occasion.
