HAPPY ONAM


The folk songs of Onam describes the rule of Mahabali like this.

When Maveli ruled the land,


All the people were equal.


And people were joyful and merry;


They were all free from harm.


There was neither anxiety nor sickness,

There were no illnesses.


Death of the children was never even heard of,
There were no lies,


There was neither theft nor deceit,


Measures and weights were right;


No one cheated others.


When Maveli ruled the land,


All the people were equal.

Did such a utopian rule by a King ever exist in Kerala?

If so why was he de-throned and pushed in to ‘Pathalam’?

Happy Onam to all.

Let us all wish that we or our future generation will see a Golden era like Maveli rule again.
