Pulikali - www.neelaearth**** A vibrant and colourful event, which is an integral part of Kerala's culture, Pulikali - meaning dance of the tiger continues to enthrall people belonging to all age groups in Kerala. During the annual festival of Onam, Pulikali performances can be witnessed in different parts of Kerala, with the district of Thrissur taking the lead in maximum number of performances. The video of the month takes you to the Swaraj Ground in Thrissur town to witness the invasion of the tiger brigade. Performers of Pulikali undergo make-up that is time consuming and is also something that warrants patience. Men paint their bodies akin to that of a tiger. And in recent years, there has been modified forms of tiger make-up, in terms of design and colours. During a typical course of performance, the tiger dancers in the presence of a hunter move with dance steps and resort to histrionics, while the percussion players add verve to the whole performance.
