Waking up to see Visho Kanye is perhaps one of my fondest childhood memories. The traditional setting of Vishu Kani, a variety of blessed items first seen in Vishu, is an inevitable part of the famous Hindu religious festival in Kerala. Since Vishu marks the traditional New Year according to the Zodiac calendar, it is believed that seeing kani heralds a good year for the beholder. As a kid, you would have seen how your grandmother or mother had groomed Kanye the night before.
The kani consisted of flowers, fruits, vegetables, and clothing, plus gold coins, an image of Vishnu and copies of the scriptures. Early in the day of Vishu, at the auspicious hour, family members are called into the room where the kani are kept with their eyes covered. It is believed that Kanye’s twinkling vision heralds a prosperous year.
