Onam festival is celebrated to honour the kind-hearted and much-beloved King Mahabali, who is believed to return to Kerala during this festival. The festival begins on the day known as Atham, and ends on the tenth day, known as Thiruvonam, also the most auspicious day during the festival of Onam. During the ten-day festivities, devotees bathe, offer prayers, wear traditional clothes and participate in dance performances, make flower carpets called pookkalam and cook traditional feasts called sadya. Samites celebrated Onam on 18th August during the online classes. The cultural and traditional aspects of onam were discussed with the children by the teachers. The kids and teachers were dressed in traditional attires and the festive mood made the Samites very happy. The surprise visit by Mahabali added more colour to the celebration.
