Onam is the harvest festival celebrated by Malayalis that marks the start of the Malayali calendar. The festival is marked by boat races, street parades involving decorated elephants and musicians performing, traditional flower arrangements, known as Pookalam. In 2018, the ten-day festival began on August 15 and the main day of the celebration is August 25. Traditionally Pookalams were made for 10 days in every house but now citing to lack of time and space, the flower rangoli is made only on the first and last day of the festival. Petals of fresh flowers and leaves are used to make beautiful flower arrangements. Among the other activities organised during Onam, pookalam competitions are also organised. And as Onam has begun, we have curated a list of Pookalam designs that are beautiful and unique.
