Happy Vishu Wishes and Significance of Malayalam New Year 2015
Happy Vishu Wishes and Greetings
From 14 to 15 April, Malayalis, Bengalis and Tamilians are all set to celebrate the first day of their new year. According to the respective calendars, the festival is the first day of the beginning of the year. Malayalam New Year is known as happy Vishu, Bengali New Year as Pohela Boishakh, Tamil New Year as Puthandu.
Happy Vishu is an auspicious festival in Kerela, which is celebrated with great joy by decorating lights and bursting firecrackers. On this day, the fun part is buying new clothes and giving money to your younger ones known as ‘Vishu Kaineettam’. People greet each other by saying Vishu Ashamsakal, and visit prominent temples like Sabarimala Ayyappan Temple or Guruvayur Sree Krishna Temple.
On the other hand, Tamilians celebrate Puthandu by greeting people, saying Puthandu Vazhthukal. On the eve of Puthandu, a tray arranged with three fruits (mango, banana and jack fruit), betel leaves and arecanut, gold/silver jewellery, coins/money, flowers and a mirror is placed. This is to be viewed upon waking in the morning. Big feast and decorations take place in all Tamil homes.
Bengalis greet people saying Shubho Noboborsho on their new year, Pohela Boishakh. In Kolkata, the festival is considered an auspicious time for marriages. Offering prayers for one’s well being, wearing new clothes, touching elders’ feet, are the part of the occasion.
