Pulikali….! – its a word that a guy from Thrissur cant forget

Pulikali : PULI means TIGER/Cheetah; KALI means play – This play used to conduct on the 4th day from ONAM,a festival of kerala. Its the most traditional festival that every keralite used to celebrate. Since i am from thrissur, pulikali is something that i cant avoid during the onam festival.
On the 4th day from the ONAM, the groups of the PULI(TIGER) will come in a procession and circulate the thrissur town. The scene is very eye catching and but its very painful for the people who demonstrate the play. They need to suffer a lot because their body is fully covered with paint. Any how lot of people come to watch the play.See some of the photos i have taken….
