Handicrafts

Handicrafts are devices or works of art that are made completely by hand or by the use of relatively simple tools. Such goods are usually made in the traditional way of manufacturing goods.

The goods are also handmade from natural materials that are found in the environment of the particular economy.

Kerala - The Land Of Festivals

Posted by Art Of Legend India [dot] Com On 10:27 PM
Kerala Fairs and Festivals
Short Summary: Kerala has a potpourri of religions and people from different walks of life live together in harmony.

Festivals occupy a prominent role in portraying the culture of a place. For a traveller, his journey reaches its destination only when he becomes a part of the culture of the place. Mostly religious, yet glorifying the traditional practices and habits of the people, festivals are symbols of the cultural richness and heritage of a place. And for a traveller to God's Own Country it is no difficult to become a part of the festival celebrations as it is a festival each day in Kerala. 

Kerala has a potpourri of religions and people from different walks of life live together in harmony.  Being home to such a huge mix of cultures, it is celebration and merry making round the year in Kerala. The days after a festival are days of preparation for the next for the people in Kerala. Though most festivals in Kerala are religious festivals, the people make it a point to celebrate all the festivals without any barriers of religion, caste, age or locality.

Each festival in God's Own Country has a spirit of Kerala in it.  The festivals are very much linked to the land, both its history and geography. The festivals in Kerala portray the richness, the depth and the colourful life each Keralite leads. Use of myriad colours, mood of merry-making and sumptuous meals make the festivals of God's Own Country stand out and worth mentioning among the festivals in other Indian states. 

Onam

The state festival Onam, with many associated legends and myths, is one of flowers, food and fun. This ten day long harvest festival, usually in August-September, marks the once in a year homecoming of the legendary king Mahabali and also numerous other natives who are toiling abroad. People of all caste and religion join hands to make the ‘pookalam’(flower carpets) and the traditional lunch. It is only in Kerala that Onam has all the glory it claims. Onam comes with spring in Kerala and makes even the tiniest of all shrubs bloom.

Almost all the festivals in Kerala are rich in colour. This colourfulness has to be attributed to the art forms of Kerala. The Kathakali and Theyyam, though very much mystic and complex, are inseparable part of the festivals. The temple festivals of the state also are interwoven with colours, lights and legends.

Vishu

Flowers also have a major part in making the festivals of Kerala colourful. The festival ‘Vishu’ marking the new year of the Malayalam calendar, is celebration of yellow. The state flower ‘Kanikonna’ blooms in plenty during April when the festival is celebrated each year. Almost all roads will be carpeted with these golden yellow flowers that fall from the tree making you feel as if a yellow carpet has been rolled out especially to welcome you.

Kerala also has its share of Christmas and Id celebrations. 

Regional Festivals

Festivals which limit themselves to a particular region are also a characteristic of Kerala. The Attukal Pongala, which has found place in the Guinness World Records for being the largest congregation of women, is a celebration which limits to the the capital city of Thiruvananthapuram. The Thrissur Pooram is a flagship event of Kerala but is limited to the Thekkinkadu Grounds in the district of Thrissur. Likewise, each place in Kerala has its own share of local celebrations and festivals.

Each festival is a season in Kerala. A season to dream. A season of nostalgia. A season of true celebration.

So, come and be a part of Kerala’s own festivals. Celebrate it the Kerala way. Bathe in colours and experiences and try taking home a bit of Kerala. But you might end up leaving a part of you in Kerala for which you will have to come down again and again.
