Campus! Part Six - Onam Experience!!

Onam's still in the air. So, today's post is related to our Onam celebration that happened at our campus. Well, it was Onam time and we were having some small kind of celebrations at our college. There was food, competition and all. So, everything was going fine. But, you know, that had some kind of discipline and all. We didn't like it. So, we were looking for some kind of variety but didn't know what to do. So, we went outside our campus and was waiting near a shop there.
Well, there comes a small group of people who performs the pulikali.
Pulikali is a kind of dance that is normally performed during the Onam festival. It is like this, people will be painted in the color/stripes of Tiger and they'll wear a mask also, which makes them a human tiger. There will be drumbeats(chenda beats) to dance according to the beat. A hunter also will be thereto shoot down the tiger. So, as the drum rolls faster the dance becomes faster and finally the hunter shoots down the tiger. That's the whole thing. [See the pics]
So, we were waiting for something to happen and it was then that these people came there. We invited them to our campus without the principal's permission and they started performing. Hearing the drum roll, all the students assembled to see what's going on. The tiger started dancing and so did we. The principal also came out hearing all this. This made us dance more. We jumped to the group of tigers and danced with them. When everything was over, we escaped to the crowd and the people who performed this started asking for money :)
We, who brought them, were no where to be seen and the principal had to give them some money from his own pocket. Some of the students who were there, also gave their share. So, we had what we wanted, some kind of freak out.
It didn't end there. After the celebrations, principal called the parents of those who had danced and told them that "Your son had came to college after drinking and he danced in here". Just like that, we were labeled as drinkers, all we did was some kind of dancing. Well, all our parents were brought to the college and the usual ramblings about us went on. Everything settled finally without much trouble :)

  11. saranya,

    Oh, You are right, universities don't have principal, but I was talking about my college and by campus, I meant our college and its surroundings. Well, the meaning might be different, we normally refer campus to our college also.
    College life, campus life
