Like all other traditional festivals, the promotion of amity and social cohesion is the aim of celebrating Onam. There is a popular myth associated with Onam. The Gods became jealous of the goodwill enjoyed by the Asura King Mahabali, the benevolent king of Kerala. So they plotted a way to get rid of him. Lord Vishnu came down to earth in the guise of Vamana, a midget. He took advantage of the good king’s benevolence and tricked him into leaving his kingdom and kicked Mahabali to the nether world. But as a courteous gesture, Lord Vishnu gave Mahabali permission to visit his kingdom and people once a year. This visit of Mahabali marks Onam, the festival of plenty.
