Onam...Ponnonam..

Today we had our Onam celebration in college. Really superb, fantastic, fabulous, amazing.... etc. the celebration was. Simply 'great'.

In the morning, we made 'pookkalam' in our class. In front of our department, there was another big one, made by our super seniors. Helped with that too. Here is it--



After that, we'd many interesting games (like musical chair and 'vellam kudi matsaram'). There were crackers . Then comes the most important part - 'Onasadhya', with all the dishes and 2 kinds of 'paayasam'. Our seniors served to us and we served them back. Really a good experience it was.

After that, we had some chit-chats and returned home happilly, without having any bitter thoughts of our series exams that finished yesterday.

That's all for today.

You can expect one more post related to 'Onam'.

Signing off,
Hailstone.

PS.1: It is our seniors who made the event such a great success. So, this post is dedicated to them.

PS.2: Advance "Happy Onam" wishes to all of you.

Brings back some nostalgic memories of mine when i was in kerala doing my B.Tech.. Gone are those days .... I really miss those dime-a-dozen Pookalams which could be seen in Kerala during Onam.
