1. Onam Celebration, the festival of Happiness
Firstly, the Onam celebration is a notable day at Creative Hut every year. Indeed, it is one of the grand celebrations for every creative hut batch student.
Secondly, the Onam festival falls during August or September every year. The interesting fact is that August is the starting month of our one-year Professional photography course too.
Hence, the celebration of Onam is the first grand festival for every new batch here.
The history behind the Onam
Onam is the Harvest Festival of Kerala. It is also to remember and welcome King Mahabali. He was a mythical king who ruled over Kerala. He is popularly known as ‘Maveli’. King Mahabali was wise and generous. He was greatly respected by all.
Lord Vishnu once tested his generosity. He visited King Mahabali’s kingdom in the form of dwarf Brahmin. And the story says that, as per his request, the King promised to give him 3 feet of land.
For the final and third step of Lord Vishnu, King Mahabali bowed his head and asked Vishnu to keep his final step on him. And thus he fulfilled his promise. But, with this, the king was suppressed to the world underneath.
The king asked for a wish to Lord Vishnu. As a result, the king was allowed to visit his land and people once in a year. This day of the visit of King Mahabali to Kerala is celebrated as Onam every year.
Hence, this is the story behind the Onam festival.
To remark the visit of King Mahabali, one of our students dress-up in the traditional getup of King Mahabali. Likewise, another student dress-up representing Kathakali artist. Kathakali is Kerala’s art and culture. This indeed adds more value to Onam, the state festival of Kerala.
How Creative Hut Students Celebrate Onam?
On this very day, all the students, faculties and staffs follow the Onam dress code. There is a great importance of Kerala’s traditional dress style.
Females wear off-white Kerala tradition sarees called Set Sarees. While the male wears off-white with golden or colored bordered Dhotis and colorful shirts. Even the students from outside Kerala enjoy this dressing style.
The day also keeps the entire team engaged in various games. For instance, the musical chair, lemon race, pot breaking game, and many more.
The vadam-vali or rope stretching game is one of the interesting and awaited games for students here. This is the very famous tug of war game. Interestingly students enjoy the rhythm in this game. This brings a team spirit to its peak among the two groups facing each other.
Those moments of enjoyment, dances, songs, games, food, maveli and Onam photography, all are precious.
The wishes and celebrations get more exciting with the ‘Onam Sadhya’. It is the special food with nearly 18 numbers of curries served in banana leaves. And last but not least the sweet dish called ‘Payasam’ is served.
The boat race is one of the famous activities during Onam. The encouraging call ‘Aarpoo Irro, Irro..’ are used during these boat race to boost the participants. Very frequently, one would hear the same Aarppo…Irro in the creative hut campus during the Onam celebration day.
