Yesterday you saw the masses celebrating Thrissur Pooram. Today I will show you the individual celebrations going on.
As with any festival in India, there will be people selling stuff.
We can find a few enterprising young ones too in the business.
Where there are sellers, there will be eager customers too.
Thrissur pooram, being a religious festival at its core, she is the representative of the faithful.
The ones who bring their own sunshade.
The knights in paper armour.
Well, just a street closeup.
The one who is not that comfortable with attention.
The genuinely happy one.
The exuberant, adrenaline pumped ones.
Taking it all in, with a puff.
No Thrissur pooram would be complete without the pachyderm, in this case, the main elephant, the one who is privileged to carry the Goddess’ image.
Hope you enjoyed the collection of portraits, human and animal. Tomorrow’s post will be about a special category of people I observed. Stay tuned.
