Happy Vishu

Posted on: April 13, 2009

 Vishu is harvest festival celebrated in Kerala primarily by Hindus. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vishu

I have memories of Vishu associated with Engineering College hostel life. Like we had joint prayer every evening (where we sung Christians songs and hindu bhajans) we celebrated most festivals and Vishu was no exception. Vishu day starts with Vishukani,’the first thing you see as you open your eyes for the day’. Traditionally Krishna’s pic or statue is in the Vishu Kani, but we would put Jesus’s pic too. Pretty much all of went to the temple that evening. Hostel mess served payasam for lunch (no sadya though).

Life was good. We never differentiated ourselves as Christians or Hindus.

I don’t celebrate now, just sharing memories. Now, I so want to eat a sadya on banana leaves..so crave for a genuine payasam..I have to wait for a visit to UL’s for all these…
