Onam 2017

Celebrating the harvest festival !
Last week was all about Onam which is the harvest festival in kerala it is glorified as the  celebration of harvest season in the southern state of India.
Onam is best described visually as a display of beautiful flower arrangements in front of the house and  with a delectable array of vegetarian food preparations served on banana leaf along with rice  .
I absolutely love Onam so in my lil' way I try to make the most of it .
With all the globalization in today's time it was easy to pull of this traditional festival .
