Onam is a time to show off our vast cultural heritage and rich variety for all the Keralites who celebrate it with much vigor than any other festival. Beautifully decorated Pookalam, ambrosial Onasadya, breathtaking Snake Boat Race and exotic Kaikottikali dance are some of the most remarkable features of Onam. Moreover, we celebrate Onam regardless of our religious background and on this very day we all come together, enjoy like we are from one family.
Onam was celebrated in grand way at our office Eram Infotech, Technopark Phase III. We were all dressed up according to the Kerala traditional way(Onakodi), women were dressed in saris and men in Mundu. Family members of many employees too came to be a part of our Onam which was a heart-warming experience.
We started our celebration by making ‘Onapookalam’, everyone contributed to this beautiful fun-filled event.
After Onapookalam we all gathered for ‘Onapattu’ where onam melodies were sung by our seniors, furthermore adding to this all employees and staffs joined them to raise the excitement even more.
Onapattu was followed by the speech from our company Director Mr.Ranjith KS and Marketing Vice-President Mr.K Jayakrishnan Nair.
