I had been thinking of attending Janapada Jaatra at Lalbag for a while, but had not made it. I finally made is last Saturday. It turned out to be a great event, and it also turned out costly for me.
Costly because, while carrying my camera to the jaatre, I lost all the images from Kerala trip! Somehow that did not bother me much. May be because I did not have any images the trip that I would call precious.
Jaatre was fun. I got to see some of the arts like Bhootada Kola, that I always wanted to witness. I had heard about the Kola from text books in primary school and wanted to watch since then! It is indeed a great event. Here is an image of the Bhootada Kola artist. You can see more images from the Janapada Jaatre here.
