It truly was a Herculean attempt, ‘try to lit one hundred thousand lamps at the same time’.
Quite Unlikely to achieve the objective in open air, but, they almost did it through an incredible collective effort driven by faith…
I was lucky to get an off day and spent enough time to capture the whole action.
If you are ready to brave the hot and humid weather, you are in for a treat …
It’s festival season here in Kerala and all your senses will be stretched to the max. I guarantee you…
Last day, when I was working from home, heard drum beats and loud announcement that a temple festival related procession is on it’s way.
Wasting no time, I ran with my camera and started clicking and thought of this week’s theme, ‘Lines’.
Temple festivals are community events and almost everyone in the village contributes towards it.
It could be either money or whatever they produce, like rice, vegitables etc;
Traditional Kerala feast will be served during the festival with numerous curries rich in spices.
I have to admit that no camera could perfectly reproduce the festival colours and sounds, you have to experience it 🙂
It has been a long time since my last post here in this great forum…
The year passed by was, one of the most challenging both personally and career wise.
Though I tried to make a come back from the long hiatus many a times, I couldn’t.
Finally I broke free, took some bold decisions and feels at peace and confident.
This is the place, from which I get all the support and encouragements and I can’t wait any longer.
Now I feel that, finally I am back, where I truly belong to and eagerly waiting to be in touch with my friends and all the wonderful people here 🙂
Note on the image: I have posted many an images of Theyyam, the ritualistic folk art form of Northern most Kerala earlier. Being from the hearland of Theyyam (Kannur), and in the middle of Theyyam season, I can’t imagine of better image than this for my come back.
You can get lot of information with a google search for ‘Theyyam’, so I am not duplicating it here.
Thank you all for stopping by 🙂
