During Onam, people create a multi-coloured floral decoration on the ground in front of their home called pookkalam. 'Pookhalam' consists of two words, 'poov' meaning flower and 'kalam' means colour sketches on the ground. There are even pookalam competitions that are held across Kerala during this time. They have become extremely popular and witness huge public participations.
