In Kerala, people are celebrating Vishu, the Malayalam New Year. Our correspondent has the details. The day begins with people taking Kani darshanam or Vishu kani soon after waking up. The elders or women in the family prepare the Vishu Kani a day before by using edible stuff like rice grains, cucumber, pumpkin, coconut, mangoes, betel leaves,  flowers, coins and fruits and a metal vessel called "urali" in front of a mirror that reflects the image of their deity.

A special yellow flower named Konna is a must in the Kani. They also exchange gifts with their loved ones and wear new clothes. On this day, devotees visit temples and offer their prayer to Lord Krishna, who is worshipped on this day.

People also visit Sabarimala Ayyappan Temple, Guruvayur Sree Krishna temple or the Kulathupuzha Sree BaalaShastha Temple to have a 'Vishukkani Kazhcha'viewing in the early hours of the day. And like all other festivals, Vishu is incomplete without an elaborate meal. There will a delicious meal -the Sadya which consists of different varieties of preparations.
