And yes, guys, please do not drink drive.

Enjoy!!!!

Happy Onam guys.
My Onam will be in Bangalore probably hogging at one of the Mallu restaurants here.

Decided to take a holiday on the actual day.

Thats a LITERAL translation. Actually translation does it no justice because most of the terms used are typical drinker's language. You wont find an equivalent.

major and others - you really need to know Malayalam to understand this one. IF you understand the spoken language but cannot READ, then perhaps Crazy or someone else can provide a Malayalam in English transformation of the text.
