Onam vannae

Onam the harvest festival of kerala.We celebrate the visit of Mahabali, the wise,judicious, generous king who ruled kerala long long ago..The legend has it that those were the happiest of all times.No discrimination on the basis of caste or creed. Rich and poor were equally treated. There was neither crime, nor corruption. People did not even lock their doors, as robbery was never heard of.No sorrows nor diseases.But this happiness did not last long :-( en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mahabali
