The spirit of 'Bonalu'

It's the month of `Ashada' and also time for `Bonalu', with religious fervour in all its traditional finery. Womenfolk, carrying the `Bonalu' to the temples, colourful `Potharajus' in a trance, `Rangam' soothsaying and family feasts are a feature of the grand celebrations to propitiate the goddess in several forms.

On Sunday, some foreigners also took part in the festivities and students of the Yana Guchi Karate School exhibited their martial arts skills near the Akkanna-Madanna temple.

The grand finale will be the `Mahankali Matha Ghatam' on a caparisoned elephant at the temple on Monday.
