We along with hundreds of pilgrims visited the Shiva temple in Chennai on the last day of Pongal. The drum heralds the arrival of the priest and the Prasad (blessed food) that is to be distributed.

Hello Elaine,
A nice photo of the drummer, pleasant colours and light and with the Tamil scripture creating an "exotic" background.

Very good documentary image,
very good job,

Hi dear Elaine

Your Indian sereies are all so impressive.
Simple but so vivid and attractive image. I like your human story touch so much.

All the best and have a good day! Takero

Hi Elaine
