“Onam” is the festival of keralites all over the world (especially in Kerala State of India). Onam celebration is happening in the malayalam month of Chingam (August-September) every year. On this moment Kerala government has been arranging a week long festival (for 2014, 5-11 September) in Thiruvananthapuram (Capital city of Kerala State). Here the buildings are decorated with light arrangements. Various traditional and cultural programs are taking place. So here the people never like loose these days in their life. At the conclusion (for 2014, 11th September) of the festival there will be a procession/pageantry. On this procession/pageantry various departments and organizations present their floats. The Government also will award the best of the floats.  I would like to thank my colleague Mr. Anulal who accompanied me to take the snaps.
