The mood maybe somber but let’s keep the faith & get ready to Arpo Irro, Irro! to the festival of togetherness (albeit with social distancing). This year the lockdown may mean a lot of the normal cultural practices may not be the “new normal”. But, let’s celebrate by staying safe & staying at home🙏
Onapookkalam is a floral carpet that's decorated with flowers and petals. It is filled with several varieties of flowers forming patterns on the floor of central entrances. Women arrange these flowers at their homes and in temple premises and decorate them with lamps on the edges or in the middle. It is a religious art that involves a lot of patience and creativity to blend the colours of petals to form a floral art. Pookkalam is very similar to Rangoli.
