In Kerala, South India you can experience a fascinating form of dance drama performed by men. It is a traditional dance form that conveys stories from Hindu mythology. The pictures here are taken at a show for tourists in Varkala.

 

The novel Mistress written by Anita Nair describes in an insightful way the art form Kathakali and the life of the middle class of South India.
