Indigenous but GREEN ways of celebrations
While visiting a village of Thrisoor district of Kerala during February 2009 I found the villagers using indigenous and eco friendly practices while decorating their houses for any celebrations or welcoming people during any programme. The palm leaves were cut finely and folded to make nice geometrical shapes and used to make hanging Toranams around the place . Similarly the paper flags of various colors were fixed on bamboo sticks and inserted artistically on the stem of banana and this was placed in the centre of house.
