ONAM- THE REAL MESSAGE : BY GEORGE KURIAN






Once in a year ONAM festival arrives and all keralites are happy. VERY GOOD. Eventhough Kerala is a small state, which is in the southernmost part of India, Kerala has a lot to be proud of...its tropical climate,People,the education, the number of political parties, the big population of Kerala residing abroad and bringing a lot of wealth to our mother Country India.
With all the glory mentioned above, are we missing something ? Peace, serenity,happiness and the beautiful panorama of our countryside which the State has been proud of and being called as GOD's OWN COUNTRY. We had a lot of green ricefields, singing streams, bullock-carts, flowering plants,coconut trees and various kinds of domestic animals. This is of a picture of about 50 years ago. People were very happy then.
Every keralian had a dream to go back and live in his State after retirement, at least for resting in the winter time, to enjoy the tropical climate. All dreams are shattered.
I am not here to criticize anyone but would like to see whether we can open a new era in our life for the sake of our future generation. What can we do ? Let us not kid around. We should come forward with an open mind remembering that, as Mahabali wanted that we are all alike,we are one.we should all try to make our fellowman content, eradicating any malice affecting our society and practice to love one another. I agree that we may have so many differences of opinion. That is natural. BUT if a few leaders come forward, associations can work together,political parties ,religious factions and all the people can come together with very little sacrifice on any one's part when we remember that we are all simple people who are here on Earth by the grace of God for very little time and we should not turn against each other and ruin the precious time we have. If we come to that conclusion, we can easily make a better tomorrow and we can bring pride to our
 KERALA,GOD'S OWN COUNTRY, WHICH WE CAN ALSO CLAIM TO BE OUR OWN COUNTRY!!
THANK YOU-- WE WISH YOU ALL A VERY VERY HAPPY ONAM
NEW WORLD
