Celebrated with great fervour by Malayalis across Kerala, Karnataka and other parts of the country, Vishu is the first day of the first solar month of Medam that marks the spring equinox (marks beginning of spring) and celebrates an abundant harvest. This year, the festival of Vishu will be celebrated in Indian on Wednesday, April 14 with the sighting of the Vishukkani during dawn.
This is the most significant event as it is believed to bring luck throughout the year. In Malayalam, the word ‘kani’ means ‘that which is seen first’, hence, ‘Vishukkani’ means ‘that which is seen first on Vishu.’
