Even walking with the head in the ground you couldn't miss it's Onam (ഓണം) in Kerala.
The streets were scattered with a festive edition of cigarette packs from local Charnimar and nationwide Scissors makers.
Though the message from smoke promoters was ironic I couldn't resist the charm of the snake boats (Chundan Vallam) illustrations and collected those boxes along my path.
With a bagful I sat down to reuse these. Flattened, handmade a recycled greeting collage & mailed as a birthday card to a friend in the USA
