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.

You are Blessed …

BlessedIt 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 πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚
