What does "Onam" festival relate to and why it is celebrated by Keralites??
A generous king known as Mahabali had ruled Kerala
People were in happiness and harmony then;
Pilfering, betrayal, hording etc were unknown
Years went by, heavenly people got annoyed
some one answered like this:
To pray the god to required to good guru. ( mahabali got guru of sukrachariyar ) and this nakshatira day God vamana conquered mahabali
The state government celebrates Tourism Week in Kerala during Onam. Much of Kerala's culture is showcased during the festivities.
