The story behind: Theyyam Makeup

Welcome to the ‘Mystic North Kerala’…

We are in the middle of yet another Theyyam season, vibrant days and nights… filled to the brim with drum beats and saturated colors.

Sleepless nights are well compensated by the divine dance of the Theyyams …

Theyyam make up is always interesting as it’s very much part of the transformation process, in which meager mortals become immortals, though, for a few hours.

Let me share a few images which I captured last week, while organizing a festival tour for our wonderful guests from Germany, Hans and Lilo.

Kerala, Weekly Photo Challenge

Weekly Photo Challenge: Unlikely, Laksham Deepam Samarppanam

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.
