Imagine removing bodily hair and getting entire body painted with tempera and enamel/varnish paint. Going through the process for 6-8 hours and then performing with the paint on for the next 6-8 hours in hot and humid #Kerala. That's one narrative one can tell about "Puli KaLLi" (tiger dance or play of the Tigers). Puli = #Tiger ~ Artists performing as Tigers are male and with a LARGE belly. To withstand the paint for hours and perform, there is the general tendency and acceptance to be in an inebriated state. ~ Puli KaLLi is performed on the 4th day (31Aug for 2015) of #Onam. #PuliKali #PuliKalli ~ #Thrissur city #Kerala #India #bodypaint #bodypainting

That's a #Sadya ("feast") meal. The host had this meal catered in. It is pretty much rice, veggies and lentils. Depending on how much dessert (payaasam or sweet rice pudding) is ordered, the per head meal price ranges approx. between ₹120 - ₹150. That's about 2-3USD tops. #Onam festival season #Thrissur district #Kerala #India #BananaLeaf
