I watched a cracking documentary on BBC iplayer the other day called feasts. The programme centered around a festival in Kerala India. A beautiful festival that brings together different religions and casts centered round a meal of 10-13 dishes. The part of the festival that really stuck in my mind was when a gang of dancers shaved there bodies and painted themselves as tigers. The best tigers were the guys with big fat bellies who could really make them roar when they giggled about when they danced. I thought i would share some images with you so you can see the great tiger faces...... 

the man they do it all for King Mahabali. If you can watch the programme do its a pretty special insight into the culture of India and some of the flaws in a cast based society. Feasts
