Mumbai Pooram Festival in Dombivili.

Recently I was invited to Mumbai Pooram Festival in Dombivili. 

The highlight of the event will be the kudamattam, which is the brisk changing of colourful umbrellas atop elephants. Other popular items were kaikottikali, a symmetric group dance which was performed by over 1,000 women brought in from Kerala, theyyam, a ritual dance from northern Kerala, and the rhythmic beating of drums called thayambaka. 
A food festival of the delicacies from the state reminded me of all my time spend in Kerala and ofcourse Amma's Ashram.
