Vishu Kanni is an important part of Vishu celebrations in all Mallu households. Being part Mallu (the one that comes from my father), Kanni is a part of the lunisolar new year celebration in my house too. Kanni literally means first view and is the first thing you open your eyes to on the auspicious day. The Kanni has a mirror, seasonal fruits, vegetables and pulses, jewellery and coins, flowers, and a diya surrounding an idol of god. So what was the first thing you noticed in this mini kanni?
