Onam Sydney 2019
Sydney Malayalee Association invites all to come together and celebration the auspicious occasion of Onam 2019 at Bowman Hall, Blacktown on August 25.
Onam or Thiruvonam originated as a joyous festival, annual reminiscence of the golden rule of King Mahabali, a mythical king, who ruled Kerala a very long time ago.
It recalls the sacrifice of the great king, his true devotion to God and his human pride. Onam welcomes the spirit of such a great king.
A flower carpet called ‘Pookalam’ is laid in front of every house to welcome the advent of the vanquished king. People decorate their homes, welcome the King with a happy face and, have feast together.
