  1. Amazing capture, Sreejith. So much clarity in this shot. Very vibrant too. The men look like they are moving very fast, and look like they are in a hurry. Hope they got the cultural attire on okay and everything went according to plan.

    • Yes Mabel, Everything went well according to plan and your observation is right, they were moving briskly …

      This rare Theyyam is performed in only a few temples and represents a powerful deity…

      For someone like me, who was born and brought up in this Theyyam land, this interesting art form is associated with an element of devotion as well.

      Hope you get a chance to visit Kerala once and watch Theyyam once πŸ™‚

    • So nice to see your comments, Yvette πŸ™‚

      This image depicts an important phase in the β€˜Theyyam’, where, a common man transforms to god for a few minutes and blesses the devotees.

      You would have seen many an images of Theyyam in my blog, as it’s irresistible for me to capture and share them.

      This β€˜folk art’ or β€˜divine dance’ is something everyone likes photographing πŸ™‚

      Thank you so much for your visit and have a beautiful day :

    • Thank you so much for your kind words, Dalo πŸ™‚

      Once I started working in my present Organisation with the idea of helping people to explore the places and culture in my native, I have started missing all the action πŸ™‚

      Either I sit and design programs in my office and manage it or travel around to attend meetings in our locations…

      Still it’s a thoroughly enjoyable work πŸ™‚

      Have a beautiful day ahead πŸ™‚
