Advanced happy vishu to all….Vishu marks the new year based on Kolla Varsham calendar traditionally followed in Kerala. This year we celebrate vishu on 14th April.
The day begins with witnessing the Vishu kani. The fruits, vegitable, Mirror and gold arranged beautifully in a plate. Konna poovu (featured here) is one important ingredient for the Kani. It is considered auspisious to see the kani as the first thing you open our eyes on the new year.
On the downside, just like Easter and Christmas are devastating for Paultry and Cattles, Vishu is devastating for the Konna trees. The Beutiful flowers that decorated the road side will all be plucked, branches of the tree broken in the process.
