Vishu Festival

Vishu is more important among Hindu festivals of Kerala, which occurs in April. Vishu marks the sowing season and is celebrated with great devotion all over Kerala. Every Hindu wakes-up to see as the fight sight, the "Vishukkani", a decorated plate, full of fruits, 'konna flowers', gold ornaments, portraitsof different deities, all placed in the full glow of lighted bell metal lamps.

The belief among the people is that by seeing 'vishukkani', they will have ensured a prosperous year for agriculture. Children as well as adults explode crackers to ward off evil spirits during Vishu
