Vaamana Jayanthi

Today is an auspicious day for Hindus. This is the day when Shree Mahaa Vishnu incarnated as Vaamanaa to destroy the ego of King Mahaabali (grandson of Bhaktha Prahlaadha, who was the greatest devotee of Lord Nrisimha). Hindus observe this day as Vaamana Jayanthi. People in Kerala celebrate this day as Onam. My best wishes to all my Hindu and Keralite friends.
