Onam is the most important festival of the Indian State of Kerala and a celebration took place in Parliament to mark the occasion. Bob was invited to join in with the event, which was hosted by Kerala Link, a leading community Newspaper in the UK, together with the Kerala Business Forum and the British South India Business Council.
The festival is intended as a celebration of the home coming of Kerala's legendary ruler, King Mahabali. During his reign people were happy, content, prosperous and lived in complete harmony with the world around them, so the festival serves as an affirmation that people are living in the same way now.
