ONAM….. once we hear this word many pictures come into our mind frame by frame- colourful flower beds… booming beats of ‘Shinkarimelam’…beautiful ‘Malayali Mankas’…. rhythm of ‘Thiruvathira’… homecoming ‘Mahabali’….. lavish ‘Sadhya’ on plantain leaf…lingering aroma of ‘Payasam’….show of muscle power in ‘Vadamvali’…. ‘Vallamkali’ in which snake boats rip through the backwater in a tussle of speed….. and many more…
MACEians celebrated Onam to its fullest… the campus overwhelmed with spirit and joy of Onam. Boys dressed in red and black color Kurtas along with the traditional “Mundu” and the young ladies in clad in “Kerala Sarees” were a real treat to the eyes…
The grand “Pookkalam” laid at the main entrance welcomed everyone. Students were busy preparing flower beds for the “Pookkalam” competition held as a part of Onam celebration.
Everyone rushed to the front gate as the beats of ‘Shinkarimelam’ echoed….. ‘Mahabali’, the legend was there with his beaming smile…And this year we had a “Sundaran” Mahabali too…:P
The high pitched cymbals and the booming drums were irresistible to MACEians….especially final years….. The beats went high…. so did their spirit… All the final year girls and boys began dancing…and they stuck to their motto indeed – “Rave Till The Grave”….:-D
Once we reached OAT, the aroma of ‘Payasam’ tickled our senses….and still the taste lingers…We also had a special performance by our final year girls….the conventional “Thiruvathira” in unconventional way…
Many games and informal events were carried out at the hotspot of MACE, the “canteen floor”
“Theettamalsaram”, filling the bottle, pillow fight, ” Malayali Mankan and Manka” were a few among them…
Then everyone moved swiftly to the ground as “Uriyadi” and ” Vadamvalli” were about to begin….
Students thronged to cheer and watch the show of muscle power.
MACE had a fantastic spectacular celebration. Everything… Everyone… Every place soared high with joy…..And that was the best Onam ever in MACE…
