Onam, the festival of Kerala is fast approaching.The month August is coming to an end. During next month, September, Onam days start by 14th. Thiruvonam is on 16th of Sept. Generally Onam days fall within the Malayalam month Chingamasam. But this year Thiruvonam is in Chingam but the next onam days fall in Kannimasam. However we celebrate Onam starting from Uthradam (first onam) and continue for four days.
Let us welcome Onam with all its pomp and pleasure. Rain has almost stopped, hence we can expect somewhat a dry Onam days.
