An Utsavam/Festival in Kerala-Glimpses

Tiruvangad SreeRamaswamiTemple,Tellicherry....
From my Home town


Well this is a picture that I had taken last time I went home...Tiruvangad Utsavam is something that we all look forward to...It comes during the Vishu days....The Utsavam that we Tellicherrites would love not to miss..It is an Utsavam which has still retained its beauty and grandeur ....It is a nostalgia that we cannot live without.... those traditional copra lit lamps filling your nostrils with a wonderful aroma, its golden flame beautifully reflecting on the decked elephants making them look ethereal, the traditional drummers-the 'panchavadyam' and 'tayambaka'-resonating in your ears....it is an experience that you would love to cherish...I was feeling homesick...and I couldnt do anything more than just browse these snaps...So thought I'll share my nostalgia with many out there who carry the whisperings of their hometown in their heart.....
