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 🙂
The unexpected December rains made everything looks so fresh and vibrant…
A morning stroll in the garden was so refreshing and given an opportunity to take some images for this week’s challenge.
The attempt to capture the wonders of nature was a realization that nothing is even remotely comparable to the wonderful camera created by nature itself, our eyes 🙂
If there is one picture, that could undoubtedly represent the exotic North Kerala, then that should be of “Theyyam“.
Where meager mortals transforms to immortals and bless the devotees with the divine dance.
Let me share this image for this Week’s Photo Challenge
You can have a look at my post Theyyam: The Divine dance from God’s own country for more images.
There is no dearth of secrets in nature which only gets revealed at the perfect time.
When it gets unveiled, it becomes a pleasant surprise for humans who looks at them with the eyes of a kid.
On a sunny summer evening my cousin and I were lucky to witness a small drama in front of our eyes, luckily I had my camera and there it is, for you guys….

It’s fever time in Kerala,not the monsoon time fever, but football fever 🙂
With the World cup Football in full swing in Brazil, Keralites are having sleepless nights, literally.
Being in the opposite side of the globe where the real action happens, Keralites have to watch matches staying awake through out the night.
Even though vast majority of Indians doesn’t follow Football, it’s something special for the people of this small southern state of India.
There are fans for almost all major teams, but I could see the team with most number of fans or followers is Argentina, which is my favorite team too 🙂
Let me share a few images taken near my home place which shows the passion of the people for this game.
