  5. Roopa,
    This was @ Sreekrishnapuram. It is my co-sister Priya, who is playing Krishna. She is a highly acclaimed Kathakali artist of our times...

  6. Zradar,
    Thanks for the appreciation. Many of us dont get to watch Kathakali these days. But there are active Kathakali clubs in places like Ernakulam, where periodical performances occur. I myself belong to one of them, but never manage to get to Ernakulam in time for the "arangu"
