It’s Theyyam time, again …

You can view Theyyam from different dimensions, such as, art, folklore, culture, myth etc;

But, one thing most of us fail to see is the human endurance perspective.

To me, Theyyam is one of the ‘Physically most demanding’ ritualistic folk art.

I felt it again, last day, when I watched a Theyyam named ‘Ilamkolam’ performed near my home.

A few images here,
