CROYDON Aug 21: KCWA cancelled all its Onam celebrations this year, on 16th Aug KCWA board decided to cancelled its Onam Sathya as the board felt that it was inappropriate to have a Onam fest while people sufferings going on in Kerala.
Since the decision, the KCWA board has been closely monitoring the situation in Kerala. After much discussion, it has also decided to cancel the Onam celebration program this year.
“We want to portray our solidarity with our people back home, who are experiencing much hardship and suffering, and therefore we believe this is not the time for Onam celebrations, a press note said.
