Tripunithura, capital of the erstwhile kingdom of Kochi was decked up today ( 4 Sep) to celebrate Athachamayam or the first day of the ten day long Onam celebrations.
While the procession showcased all the art forms of Kerala, I snooped around the Municipal Boys school to watch the artistes prepare with their make up and costumes.
I thought I’d be the odd ball out at 7 AM but I saw a battalion of DSLR wielding folks apart from TV channels eager to grab some prime images.
I started trailing the friendly crew of SURYA TV channel and was able to get some decent footage.
This part covers only the preparation stage. I will post the procession pics in the next part.
