August 2015 calendar desktop wallpaper: Kathakali Dancers from God’s Own Country

 

So August is here and so is our August 2015 Calendar desktop wallpaper for download,  from your friendly neighborhood desi Traveler.  This picture was clicked in the birth place of Kathakali, or God’s Own Country Kerala during a performance I witnessed at Vivanta by Taj Kovalam in Trivandaraum or Thiruvananthapuram ( and you wonder how come desi Kids win all spelling Bee competitions in US ). I had seen Kathakali earlier but it was my first live performance of Kathakali in the birthplace of Kathakali.

Needless to say I fondly remember the dance performance that was preceded by the story narrated, this is a small episode from Mahabharata the greatest epic of all times. Here the characters are playing Draupadi and Bheem, one of the Pandava princes.  This particular picture was clicked when the two artists posed for photographers after the show. They were very kind and patient with us wannabe photographers who were shoving our cameras, cell phones etc. in their faces.

I later had a chance to photograph Katkhakali artists do their makeup later in the trip, but that dear readers is another story, as each artist can take many hours to get the makeup right, and it is all done using a small hand-held piece of mirror while the artist colors the face with the other hand. Yes no makeup artists for the performers like our movie stars, and besides dance they also learn to do their makeup too.

Anyway long story short without taking much of your time, here is the August 2015 Calendar desktop Wallpaper for download.

 


Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you Kathakali dancers from God’s Own Country for August 2015 Calendar Desktop Wallpaper for download.  You can just click on the size you want and save the file as your desktop wallpaper calendar.


As you will recall I have special love for Kerala, not only Kerala is one of the most beautiful and traveler friendly places on earth, 2 of my pictures that I clicked in Kerala have won prizes from Better Photography Magazine and were printed in the same.  So if you are planning your next holiday within India may I suggest Kerala ? You can thank me once you are back  🙂
