Greetings: Industry and business leaders wish on the occasion of Onam 2020
Yusuffali MA, Chairman, LuLu Group
What's a Malayalee without Onam. A truly national festival which binds everyone irrespective of caste, creed, religion or even nationalities. In fact, Onam is celebrated with more fervour and enthusiasm in the Gulf with almost all nationalities joining in. My earliest memories of Onam are, going around our neighbourhood with friends to collect flowers for Athappoo, Payasams made by best friend's mother, vegetarian Onasadhya at home by my mother, the list goes on. The tradition continues at my home even now in Abu Dhabi, with all my children and grandchildren sitting down together for traditional Sadhya. Though I used to miss few "family Onam" due to my travel schedules. But this year, thanks to Covid-19 restrictions, I am not travelling anywhere and that means I can be with my family at home.
Surely it will not be a celebration time for many of us, rather it would be an occasion to be more conscious towards society, family and to your own health and safety.
I sincerely hope and pray that this Onam will bring about more prosperity and peace to entire mankind and we can soon go ahead with our lives in a normal and safe way.
Karthik Moorthy, Vice-President, Product Management & Marketing, Nikai
It has been a tough year for humanity in general and each of us have had our share of woes during this pandemic. Onam and the state of Kerala are synonymous with the spirit of Sharing and Caring. Kerala and its wonderful citizens have been global ambassadors when it comes to setting an example on how the state manages pandemics and disasters. May this Onam kick start the process of revival as each one of us commence our journey of rebuilding our communities. On behalf of Nikai, we sincerely call upon the Maveli thampuran to visit each of your Homes and share his choicest blessings. Happy Onam!
