Several groups in the Mylapore area celebrated Onam this past week……here are a few snapshots..
Seen in the picture are children of Fatima Nursery and Primary School at Lazarus Church Road dressed up as King Mahabali, Lord Vishnu and the brahmin – Vamana. The teachers explained the story of King Mahabali to them and also helped them put up a pookalam at the school premises.
At Sprouts Montessori School, Mylapore, children and staff came dressed in traditional costumes, sorted out the flowers and put up a pookalam in their classroom. The children were also given a presentation on why and how this festival is celebrated.
