These children are dressed as Yakshagana characters. The dresses are very colourful. Yakshagana is a folk art, a dance drama of our place. This photo is in the temple square in our town.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Colorful

 

By Lakshmi Bhat

I am a person who believes there is not enough darkness in the world to extinguish the light of a small candle. We live in a small place in South India. I love reading, blogging, stitching, traveling, photography, listening to people and many other things which make life so very nice and interesting. Blogging is a fun experience, it has brought me into contact with people in different parts of the world and it is good to read about their everyday life. In spite of the differences there is a sameness which is fascinating. I have learnt and am learning something everyday. I have learnt to write haikus. I enjoy combining the thought and the number of syllables. I have always read books and I was happy to write short fiction. I had thought I would not be able to do so. Stream of Consciousness and photo challenges are fun too. Yes, there is so much in life that is sad and that hurts us. Many a time I wonder why life is so unfair to so many. We all have problems in life but the problems of many seems unbearable. This makes me feel so helpless. It is not possible to help everyone but we can do our bit, we can do something to help some in whatever way we can. I go to the Home for the Mentally challenged in our campus twice a week. I have been going there since 2011. The members are an important part of my life. The Covid has made it difficult for me to go there regularly. There have been many challenges in life and we have faced them with a positive approach. Our grandson and granddaughter have made life so much more richer.

  1. Yesterday I bought all the seed packets to plant colorful annuals. Of course we can’t plant the seeds until June, but I love getting to look at them. Your flowers are lovely.

    1. In my language, Kannada, we call the first and the third as Dasavala. The second we call Kiskaara. The first flower is the original hibiscus, most of the others are hybrid varieties. The leaves and the flower have medicinal value.
