Vishu is a Hindu festival celebrated in KeralaIndia. It is also celebrated as Bisu in Mangalore and Udupi district of Karnataka,India. Vishu signifies the Hindu New Year and falls on the month of Medamin the Malayalam calendar, usually in the second week of April in theGregorian calendar.[2][3] The official date is set by the Indian National Calendar.[4]

Vishu is celebrated with much fanfare and vigour in all parts of Kerala, especially by Hindus.[5][6] It is considered a festival of light and fireworks,[5]and decorating lights and bursting of firecrackers (Vishupadakkam) is part of the celebration. Other elements of Vishu include buying of new clothes (Puthukodi) for the occasion, the tradition of giving money calledVishukkaineetam ,[5] and the Vishu feast or Sadya, which consist of equal proportions of salty, sweet, sour and bitter items. Feast items includeVeppampoorasamMampazhappulissery, Vishu kanji and Vishu katta .[5]

The most important event in Vishu is the Vishukkani, which literally means "the first thing seen on the day of Vishu after waking up". The Vishukkani consists of a ritual arrangement of auspicious articles intended to signify prosperity, including rice, fruits and vegetables, betel leaves, arecanut,metal mirror, yellow flowers called konna (Cassia fistula), holy texts andcoins, all arranged around lord Krishna in an ambience lit by nilavilakku or tookkuvilakku (traditional oil lamps) usually in the prayer room of the house. This is arranged the night before Vishu and is the first sight seen on Vishu. On Vishu, devotees often visit temples like Sabarimala Ayyappan Temple orGuruvayur Sree Krishna temple to have a 'Vishukkani Kazhcha' (viewing) in the early hours of the day.


Belief

It is said that Lord Sri Krishna killed the demon Narakasura on the Vishu day. Another interesting belief is related to the demon king Ravana. Ravana had never allowed Surya deva (Sun God) to rise straight from the East and after Ravana's death it was on a Vishu day, that Surya deva started to rise from the East. Hindus of Kerala and nearby places celebrate Vishu to commemorate the return of Surya deva.
