Onam on my mind

School tableau. The mystery of the vanishing flowers. Long walks. Best friends. Lighted fountains at waterworks. Thiruvathirakali. First term exams. Brand new clothes. Food festival at Kanakakunnu. Visitors from far away. Snake boat races. New Monhanlal movies. First love. Sale at Maveli stores. Athapoo at every intersection. Secretariat lights. Thatha's stories. Vanchipaattu. Broken promises. Street theater. Load shedding. Lights on trees. Foreign movies at Nishagandhi. Maveli masquerades. Ottan Thullal at the nearby temple. Swings in every backyard. Onasadya.

Happy Onam.

Now to find where the local Mallu association Onam feast will be held!

New Monhanlal movies.
:-))

Yes, Thiruvananthapuram was beautiful during Onam. It's been a long time since I last saw those festivities, though.

happy Onam to you too.......

Now i really need to find some mallus (there aren't too many on campus), make friends with them, and get them to invite me for dinner asap.
