Dubai princess wishes Kerala expats a happy Onam - News

Dubai has long been a home away from home for expats from every corner of the globe. The city’s openness when it comes to celebrating multicultural diversity is both well-documented and celebrated.

But it still gives residents a rush of pleasure when a Dubai royal marks special occasions and festivals with them.

Case in point: Sheikha Maryam bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, daughter of the Ruler of Dubai, wishing Indian expats from the state of Kerala a happy Onam.

The Dubai princess took to Instagram on Saturday to wish celebrants of the 10-day annual harvest festival, a major event for Keralites.

Using the social media platform’s ‘stories’ feature, she posted a picture of a grand floral carpet known as Pookalam, a traditional decoration of fresh flowers created in intricate patterns, and the words ‘Happy Onam’ chalked out above.

It’s hardly the first time a member of the royal family has extended greetings during an Indian festival.
