. Theyyam is a ritual form in Kerala, India. If you have ever had a chance to see this ritual, you will know that the person performing the Theyyam is considered as the supreme power while in that state. This particular Theyyam is a ‘Chaamundi’, a fearsome aspect of Devi, one of the seven Matrikas (mother goddesses) in Hindu mythology. This was one of 39 Theyyam that took place at my native place spanning for a period of 3 days. This still perfectly portrays the spine-chilling energy of the epitome while he performs the ritual with sheer faith and zeal.
