According to ancient myths, King Mahabali defeated the gods and declared his rule over Kerala. Even if he was a demon, he was a generous king and loved by people. The kingdom was peaceful and prosperous in his reign. His popularity threatened the gods and they asked Lord Vishnu to help them. Lord Vishnu disguised himself as Varmana and tricked King Mahabali into returning all the land he occupied on Earth to the gods. But as Lord Vishnu was impressed by Mahabali, he blessed the King with a boon that gave him permission to visit his former kingdom once a year. So, people of Kerala welcome their kind king Mahabali and celebrate Onam to honor him. Happy Onam 2022 to the residents of Kerala!
