Kerala celebrates Onam

Keralites today celebrated Onam, their spring festival commemorating the egalitarian Utopia under the reign of mythical King Mahabali when people lived in plenty, prosperity and equality. Cutting across caste, class and religious barriers homes were decorated with floral carpets to welcome the annual re-visit of Mahabali. Snakeboat races and exotic Kaikottikali dances are some of the most remarkable ways the festival is celebrated.
