  • EDITORIAL Dear readers, We have been going through mixed emotions over last few months with lot of things happening around us. A new American president, economic slowdown, middle east crisis, and Victoria bushfires all have touched our hearts and made the headlines around the world. Hopefully, the current economic slowdown won’t affect our community. Please find some time to help those who affected. To move away from these issues, this is the perfect time to contact your team captain and involve in activities. More importantly, this is an opportunity to meet people and make net work within our community. Once again, we are progressing towards the publication of Pravasi magazine and need more contributions from our members. Please find some time and make things happen. Regards Sreejith Kesavan.

    THAYYAM – A RITUAL ART FORM OF KERALA The Theyyam or Theyyattam is a popular ritual dance of north Kerala, particularly pre- sented in the Kolathunadu of the present Kannur and Kasargod districts. As a living cult with cen- turies old traditions, ritual and custom, it embraces almost all castes and classes of Hindu religion in this region. It is a rare combination of dance and music and reflects important features of a tribal culture. People of these districts consider Theyyam as a God and they seek blessings from Theyyam. Its indeed an unprecedented experience to watch this dance symbolising the ultimate power. When the monsoon recedes, when the blue skies are clear and skies are clear of dark clouds, and the day,s hard work is done, drums resound from the villages, far and near. The Theyyam performance can be observed from Oct to March at various Kavu (small temples) spread over the northern Kerala. Watching theyyam in the midnights invoke the inner feelings of our mind.
