Theyyam -The Enigmatic Ritual

Meaning God, Theyyam is God’s dance rich with piety, rituals, and folklores. Believed to have been originated more than 1500 years ago, it is rooted in ancient Dravidian culture. Native to the northern parts of Kerala, Theyyam is still a predominant practice of piety in those regions. Theyyam is a religiously ritual art and simultaneously a Godly dance form. Men (mostly) from specific cast groups of the region assume the form of God and become Theyyam. The tradition is handed down from generations after generations in those families. Even from a very young age grooming begins to be a Theyyam.

For an outsider it is difficult to comprehend the meaning and depth of Theyyam. Yet, the trance of Theyyam astounds you to the core. What a normal spectator perceives as a colorful art form, a believer embraces as tangible God in trance. One such anciently mythical and divinely flamboyant religious ritual form is Theyyam.

Pongal traveling to Kerala

Pongal (Tamil: தைப்பொங்கல்) is a harvest festival celebrated by Tamils in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu, Indian Union Territory of Pondicherry and in Sri Lanka. Pongal coincides with the festival Makara Sankranthi celebrated throughout India. Pongal in Tamil means “boiling over or spill over.” The boiling over of milk in the clay pot symbolizes material abundance for the household. Thai Pongal, celebrated at harvest time, is traditionally intended to thank the Sun God and farmstead livestock that helped create the material abundance.

This year however, unlike the preceding years, the festival will have colorful difference in parts of Kerala as well. The Kerala government declared Pongal holidays to 5 districts in Kerala, viz, Thiruvananthapuram, Palakkad, Pathanamtitta, Idukki and Wayanadu. The cabinet meeting took the decision followed by a request from the Tamilnadu chief minister M. Karaunanidhi. This year’s pongal is celebrating on Saturday 15th of January 2011.

This is going to stabilize the relationship between both states. In past there had been issues that have left scars on the relationship side of both the states. Let this decision be an example to other states as well. Let there be a country that unites in celebration.
