Trivandrum: In a novel initiative that promises to be a visual treat for Onam revellers, Kerala’s Tourism Department has come up with a video greeting that contains spectacular visuals of the festivals set to a medley of songs by renowned singer Vaikom Vijayalakshmi.
The greeting, which can be customized and sent from the link www.keralatourism.org has been created by Thiruvananthapuram-based Invis Multimedia. Traditional Onam favourites like ‘Pookkalam,’ ‘Pulikali,’ ‘Oonjalattam,’ ‘Kummattikali,’ and ‘Vallomkali’, performed by as many as 30 artists, feature in the two and a half minute long video.
The website has more interesting features and videos of viewers to browse through and enjoy. The Onam songs sung by Vijayalakshmi and her chorus team can also be downloaded from the page.
Kerala Tourism is the first tourism department in the country to have launched such a facility online. Over the past few years, users in more than 200 countries have viewed and shared Kerala Tourism Onam video greetings.
