VISHU FESTIVAL

vishu-kaniVishu is a festival celebrated in Kerala, India, which signifies the New Year Day of Malayalam Calendar Kollavarsham. It is celebrated on the first day of the month Medam which usually falls on 14th or 15th of April. The festival has deep cultural significance and the Malayali Hindus around the world celebrate it with passion and devotion. It is being observed also in Mangalore and Udupi districts of Karnataka state, in the second week of April and is called as Bisu.

It is believed that if one sees the divine in form of Vishukanni, first thing of morning on the day of Vishu, they are blessed for the whole year.  Traditionally, ice,linen, cucumber, betel leaves, metal mirror, holy text and coins in a bell metal vessel called uruli is arranged in the puja room. Keralites, on the day of Vishu, close their eyes and go to puja room first thing in the morning to see the Vishukanni. A lamp is lit alongside this arrangement throughout the previous night as a sign of good luck. The holy Vishukanni is then distributed among the poor.

Another important custom of Vishu is Vishukkaineetam. It is traditionally followed as the gifting of money by the elders to younger generation or by the landlords to tenants. Usually, the head of the family gives vishukkaineetam to the younger generation, servants and other workers, and wishes them prosperity. Some affluent families not only give money to their children and workers, but also to their neighbors and natives. Vishukkaineetam should be given freely and it should be accepted with reverence.

The Vishu feast or Sadya, consists of equal proportions of salty, sweet, sour and bitter items. Though Sadya or traditional feast is a part of all Kerala festivals, there are some mandatory items for the VishuSadya. Vishu Kanji, VishuKatta, Veppampoorasam (a bitter preparation of neem),Mampazhappulissery (a sour mango soup) and Thoran (a traditional side dish made of chopped vegetables and grated coconut) are the important preparations for the occasion of Vishu.
