Autumns passed charioting Onam every year. Through the sunny beaches, lush croplands, hilly forests and crowded city streets, the chariot swept sprinkling fragrance of festivity, simplicity and happiness. As delicacies that oozed through my tongue. As the winsome smiles of ladies clad in traditional attire making pookalam. Like a million elements of the festivity, Onam breathed into the life of everyone. A million moments, like the petals of flowers in pookalam. Of different colors. Of Different shapes. But delivering a smile on every glance on it. A million petals, a million moments. After the celebration, the ladies broom away them. The wonderful creation of our patience, creativity and imagination finds its way to dumping yard, behind our childrens playground. Well keats was right ‘ a thing of beauty is joy forever’. Hardly thirty minutes it stayed as a wonder on flowers. But the joy still pounds in my heart. . The laughter, the smiles and the entire atmosphere well incubated in my memory. Sometimes when my closed eyes diffuse into the silence around, my mind replays those sequences that makes me think again and again, that if gods ever existed, they must have settled somewhere there. That’s why God’s Own country is so incomplete , Gods Own This Country fits the best.
