Onam Pookalam

When ever we talk about Onam in Kerala, the first thing that comes to mind is the flower bed or floral arrangements popularly known as Pookkalam or Athapookalam. The traditional Ona-pookalam usually consists of ten concentric rings of flowers indicating the ten day ritual during the ten day celebrations of Onam. Onam begins on Atham and ends on Thiru Onam in the month of Chingam (August – September).

Nowadays most of the people are more concerned about the design of pookkalams, due to which they are not bothered to keep all the ten rings. The pookkalams are really beautiful and mainly depicts various cultural aspects of Kerala and Onam myth.

Here are a collection of Pookkalam pictures which will help you out to celebrate Onam with lots of fun and excitement.








So celebrate the spirit of the harvest festival in all its splendor. Decorate your house with Pookalams, listen to the melodious Onappattus and enjoy the festivities of the season. Send your loved ones beautiful Onam ecards to wish them joy and prosperity.

Happy Onam!!


It's Onam! So celebrate the spirit of the harvest festival in all its splendor. Decorate your house with Pookalams, listen to the melodious Onappattus and enjoy the festivities of the season. Send your loved ones beautiful ecards to wish them joy and prosperity.

Ramadan 2008

Object of Ramadan
0n a sweltering hot day your throat has become parched. You are in the privacy of your home and the refreshingly cool water is within hand's reach. You desire to drink it, but you do not. Why? Simply because you are fasting and while fasting you cannot eat and drink. If somebody prompts you to nevertheless drink it and says: "Nobody is watching," you will immediately rebuke him with the words: "But Allah is watching!"

Success Through Tazkiya During Ramadan by an anonymous sister
Success in this life very much depends on self- development, which can be achieved through purifying our souls and actions - Tazkiya. There is a Hadith which narrates that during Ramadan shaitans - which are the forces that make people do bad things- are locked up for the entire month and cannot influence our decisions.
As you can see, to fully acquire the benefits of Ramadan, obe must practice Tazkiya (purification of the soul) The purpose of Ramadan is to cleans our soul and body. Through hunger, we achieve psychological purifications, and bring harmony to our bodies, minds, and souls. By abstaining from our desires, we are disciplining our mind and soul.

Ramadan Virtues, Blessings & Essential Elements by Iman Badawi
In the name of Allah, Most Merciful, Most Compassionate
All praise is to Allah, Whom we thank and seek for His help and forgiveness.
We seek refuge in Allah from the evils of ourselves and the burden of our evil deeds.
Whomsoever He guides, will never be misled, and whomsoever He misguides, will never find enlightenment.
I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Mohammad is His slave and Messenger.
Allah said, what translated means, “O you who believe! Fear Allah as He should be feared, and die not except in a state of Islam” [3:102],

Meaning and essence of Prayers

Human beings have been praying for as long as humanity has existed. Rich or poor, literate or illiterate, the urge to pray is equally present in all. A well-known author has best described this as follows:
"In wandering over the earth, you can find cities without walls, without science, without rulers, without palaces, without treasures, without money, without gymnasium or theatre, but a city without temples to gods, without prayer, oaths and prophecy, such a city no mortal has ever seen and will never see.”

Ramadan Greetings




The time I always wait for is just around the corner - Ramadan!!
I just love everything during Ramadan the Night of Power, Taraweeh, Eid and Eid prayers, and sahur and iftar. It feels so good that I can't express, from my childhood time till now its no difference. I feel the same calibration and spiritualism in my mind.

The purpose of Ramadan is concerned with the renewal of eemaan, actually its the time for speritual growth. Ramadan is a time when every one strive to get every bit of sweetness of Ramadan, to get the benifit for the coming year because you never know whats ahead in your life.

Ramadan has endless benefits which we learn and help ourself to lead a life of greatness. It teaches how to have self control, how to overcome selfishness and greed, to get rid of from laziness. An annual tranning program helps us to understand our duties towards the creator and sustainer Allah. Fasting helps to understand the feeling of thirst and hunger which in turn develops our feeling for poor and hungry people. Also it helps to keep sexual desires under control and have love for everyone in the world.

may your blessings be too many to count and your worries too few to matter. May God bless and protect us all. My wishes to all for a blessed Ramadan and please remember those who go hungry all year long… Ramadan Mubarak to all.


The holy month of Ramadan unites all Muslims in fasting, feasting, worship and prayer. It is a time for contemplation, spirituality and brotherhood. Here is a Collection of some unique Ecards, celebrating this special period of intense prayer and happy rejoicing. Set the mood of Ramadan now by sending some Ramadan greeting cards.

First Love

I ne'er was struck before that hour
With love so sudden and so sweet.
Her face it bloomed like a sweet flower
And stole my heart away complete.

My face turned pale, a deadly pale.
My legs refused to walk away,
And when she looked what could I ail
My life and all seemed turned to clay.

And then my blood rushed to my face
And took my eyesight quite away.
The trees and bushes round the place
Seemed midnight at noonday.

I could not see a single thing,
Words from my eyes did start.
They spoke as chords do from the string,
And blood burnt round my heart.

Are flowers the winter's choice
Is love's bed always snow
She seemed to hear my silent voice
Not love appeals to know.

I never saw so sweet a face
As that I stood before.
My heart has left its dwelling place
And can return no more.

John Clare

A Valediction: Forbidding Mourning


As virtuous men pass mildly away,

And whisper to their souls to go,

Whilst some of their sad friends do say

The breath goes now, and some say, No;



So let us melt, and make no noise,

No tear-floods, nor sigh-tempests move;

'Twere profanation of our joys

To tell the laity our love.



Moving of th' earth brings harms and fears,

Men reckon what it did and meant;

But trepidation of the spheres,

Though greater far, is innocent.


Dull sublunary lovers' love

(Whose soul is sense) cannot admit

Absence, because it doth remove

The thing which elemented it.



But we, by a love so much refined,

That our selves know not what it is,

Inter-assurèd of the mind,

Care less, eyes, lips and hands to miss.



Our two souls therefore, which are one,

Though I must go, endure not yet

A breach, but an expansion,

Like gold to airy thinness beat.



If they be two, they are two so

As stiff twin compasses are two;

Thy soul, the fixed foot, makes no show

To move, but doth, if th' other do.



And though it in the centre sit,

Yet, when the other far doth roam,

It leans, and hearkens after it,

And grows erect, as that comes home.



Such wilt thou be to me, who must,

Like th' other foot, obliquely run;

Thy firmness makes my circle just,

And makes me end where I begun.



John Donne

If I Were Her Lover



I

If I were her lover,
I'd wade through the clover

Over the fields before
The gate that leads to her door;

Over the meadows,
To wait, 'mid the shadows,

The shadows that circle her door,
For the heart of my heart and more.
And there in the clover

Close by her,
Over and over
I'd sigh her:
"Your eyes are as brown
As the Night's, looking down

On waters that sleep
With the moon in their deep" . . .
If I were h
er lover to sigh her.


II

If I were her lover,
I'd wade through the clover

Over the fields before
The lane that leads to her door;
I'd wait, 'mid the thickets,

Or there by the pickets,
White pickets that fence in her door,
For the life of my life and more.
I'd lean in the clover—
The crisper
For the dews that are over—
And whisper:
"Your lips are as rare
As the dewberries there,
As ripe and as red,

On the honey-dew fed" . . .
If I were her lover to whisper.


III

If I were her lover,
I'd wade through the clover
Over the field before
The pathway that leads to her door;
And watch, in the twinkle
Of stars that sprinkle
The paradise over her door,
For the soul of my soul and more.
And there in the clover
I'd reach her;
And over and over
I'd teach her—
A love without sighs,
Of laughterful eyes,
That reckoned each second
The pause of a kiss,
A kiss and . . . that is
If I were her lover to teach her.
