The Great Festival - Poem by Gangadharan nair Pulingat..
Today an auspicious day for all
My beautiful Kerala celebrates
The great Onam festival of joy
Of flowers and delicious dishes
A great memory of social justice
Under the statesmanship of a beloved King
An emperor who stood with the people
A period of prosperity and well being
The world of minus sorrows in families
No frauds or corruption in administration
No crimes against women or children
And justice to all among the subjects
But compelled to go for ever with a boon
To comeback once in a while on Thiruvonam
The day we are ready to welcome him
May happy wishes and blessings to all
The day of equality, justice and freedom
And also peace prevail in this world
Without hate campaigns and atrocities.
We can hope a world of welfare to all.
