Thris­sur, In­dia Septem­ber 8

ONAM PULIKALI TIGER PLAY Onam is one of the big­gest fes­ti­vals for the state of Ker­ala, cel­e­brated at the time the new crop is har­vested by farm­ers. The Onum Pulikali Tiger Play is per­formed on the fourth day of the fes­ti­val, in var­i­ous parts of Thris­sur. It is all about the un­in­tended hide-and-seek game played be­tween the tiger and its hunter. Dur­ing this time, a com­mon sight is men dressed as tigers on the roads of Thris­sur, mov­ing to the beats of tra­di­tional in­stru­ments (mostly drums). Clas­sic dance forms are also per­formed as a part of these small skits. ker­ala­tourism.org
