when the girls from the family left home after marriage ,then it was the turn of the boys to manage pookalam.
I remember we used to go in the previous night and gather flower buds so that they will open up in the morning .I t was an important activity and you are measured by your peers based on how much flowers and varieties you have collected.There were some gentleman's rule ,like not plucking flowers from other boys area( its like street gundas today who earmark areas for their hafta).Girls also join the flower search and are sometimes out wit the boys in climbing the wall and trees.
Tomarrow is Onam.Let me wish you all a happy and properous Onam.
