• 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, it is also referred to as "chawar". The long, white tail feathers of the peacock were historically used to make traditional fans/chawars, which were then connected to a wooden handle. They were then stitched together to create an elaborate and ornamental fan.
• This modern Venchamaram is made out of synthetic materials, such as white threads / fabric, silver or gold painted handles, and ornamental details. In Kerala, these ceremonial fans have important cultural and religious meanings.
• In particular, these ceremonial fans are frequently employed at temples and during religious festivals in a variety of traditional activities and processions. The fans can be seen 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.
