A fancy dress competition was held near my house in connection with Onam festivities. You can see some of the participants. Michael Jackson look alike was the biggest attraction. He enthralled us with his dancing.Please click on the photos for a large lovely view.

Wow.... The costumes evoke alot of different emotions from them. The one withe the couple and their children is one that really stopped me. I'm not sure what they were portraying, but you sure can see the emotions in that photo. Plus the one at the top of the page with the man in Red, that made me laugh. Thanks for sharing the photos. Watching the direction your pictures go, you're life is very adventuress.. I can see you enjoy it very much. Have a wonderful day Joseph and God Bless... Kat

Also... I went on another lunch adventure to find some new stuff, stop by my other blog when you have a moment.

What a colourful place you call your home. Am also impressed of the way people seem to be happy. When I look around the streets of Athens, they are either running from one job to the next one, calling someone on their mobile phone, forgetting even to stop at a red traffic light.
A nice pause you provided with this amazing photography. Thank you.

Haha funny pictures Joseph ji...Esp that Michael Jackson-seems like he has stunned everyone on the road...And what do the five family members represent? To me they appear to be imitating beggars....sorry if I'm n't correct. And that blue dress one-Is that a lady or a gent imitating a lady or really a mixed variety?

Joseph, thanks so much for sharing that cultural experience with us across the world. It is good to see happy news! Love that Michael Jackson with his sandals! Did he moonwalk? Have a lovely day.

Very colorful entertaining show.
I suppose that 'woman ' was a Rakhi Sawant or Mallika Sherawat look alike (if they know them in Kerala)

Everybody really dressed up to compete.
Did Michael Jaikisen come number one?

Looks like great fun.

It is so nice to see that people in the world are not just preoccupied with violence and wars. These photos showed so much life and really helped me see that people, anywhere in the world, deep down want peace.

Everyone in those photos was happy, at peace, and simply enjoying being alive! How beautiful. I'm sure these photos hold special memories for you. Thank you for sharing them with us. :)

Hi Joseph,
I was telling a new friend about your blog the other day, how much like a travel journal it is for me, a place to see all the beauty of India, the diversity of land, the fascinating array of cultural differences. Well, now I will have to show her this post! What a great post to illustrate what I was telling her. India, land of enchantment!
God bless,
Fred

Hi Rema:)

Greetings:)

It's good to see you after Onam holidays. I hope you had a good celebration with your family.

It is true a video of that duplicate Michael Jackson would have been wonderful. Unfortunately, I could not take a video.

Have a nice day Rema:)
