|• In South India, particularly in the state of Kerala, a particular style of ceremonial fan is referred to as venchamaram. Vencha, which means "white," and maram, which means "tree," are two Malayalam words that are combined to form the phrase "Venchamaram."
• In some areas, the decorative fan is also referred to as "Thazhampoo". The long, white tail feathers of the peacock are historically used to make venchamarams, which are then connected to a wooden handle. They are painstakingly stitched together to create an elaborate and ornamental fan.
• Venchamarams may include additional components besides peacock feathers, such as silk fabric, silver or gold handles, and ornamental details like beads or sequins. In Kerala, these ceremonial fans have important cultural and religious meanings.
• In particular, traditional fans are frequently employed at temples and during religious festivals in a variety of traditional activities and processions. The fans, known as venchamarams, are carried by designated people as they pass significant characters or deities, softly waving them to provide a sense of grandeur and a refreshing wind.
• Venchamarams are viewed as representations of courage, respect, and dedication. As cultural artefacts, they are highly prized and intricately made. Venchamarams are typically employed in religious settings, but they have also appeared in modern cultural events, plays, and even as decorative objects in homes.
