Significance of Vishu


Vishu is one of the most significant festivals celebrated in Kerala which marks the astrological new year of the Malayalis. On the day of Vishu, the farmers in Kerala begin the ploughing of land and other agricultural activities.


Rituals performed on Vishu


Vishu Kani is regarded as the symbol of good luck and prosperity by all Hindu Malayalis. The female members of the family arrange Vishu Kani which consists of cucumber, rice, coconuts, betel leaves, gold ornaments, new clothes, a holy granth, coins in a silver cup, mangoes, jackfruit, metal mirror, fresh lemon with a little metal lamp alongside.


On the day of Vishu, all the family members have to wake up early in the morning by dawn with closed eyes and go to the worship area of the house, to get the first sight of the Vishu Kani because it would bring them good luck throughout the year. The holy text of Ramayana is recited during the puja and the common belief among Malayalees is that the recital would have its sacred effects on all family members.


Vishu Paddakam is an integral part of the Vishu celebration where everyone burst crackers. This is followed by a traditional feast known as “Vishu Sadhya” which is prepared keeping in mind all flavors that should be equally present in the meal.


And then comes the most important tradition of Vishu which is known as Vishu Kaineetam. This ritual is basically the tradition of gifting in Vishu festival. Currency notes and coins are the most cherished and traditional Vishu festival gifts. The kids usually love this ritual because the elders of the family give money (can be coins also) to every young member of the house who will touch their feet. This is considered as a blessing.


Traditional outfits are a must on Vishu


People usually wear their best outfits on the day of Vishu and women love to adorn themselves with gold ornaments. Men wear the traditional 'mundu' along with khadi shirts.


The handwoven off-white Kerala saree with golden border is the most preferred outfit for women on Vishu. The saree can be paired with a similar off white and golden border blouse or with any other colored blouse.
