Happy Vishu 

I wish all of you, your family and friends a Happy Vishu. May this Vishu brings happiness, peace and prosperity in your life. May all your wishes come true.

Vishu, Hindu festival, marks the first day of the Malayalam calendar month, Medam. Everyone celebrates Vishu in Kerala with great spirit.  People celebrate Vishu by preparing Vishukkani(first sight)  in the morning, Vishu Kaineettam ,  making elaborate Sadya (vegetarian feast) for lunch,   fire crackers, etc

The auspicious Vishukkani is the most important part of the Vishu celebration. Vishukkani is the first thing you see in the morning and it’s believed that if the Vishukkani is good, the rest of the year is going to be good for you. In a nutshell, the fortune for the year depends on how carefully Vishukkani is made. So, Vishukkani is prepared with everything  related to prosperity.  Normally it’s prepared by the most experienced or the eldest person of the house.
