CFFC: Musical Chairs

This week, Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Musical Chairs  was a tough nut to crack. I was quite resigned to not participating what with continuing net woes.

But I managed to pull it off – or did I?

At a roadside joint- nice colorful chairs. But lacks the thing, doesn’t it?

Guess who’s playing hide and seek or should I say musical chairs? 😀 Remember an earlier post – Cat-a-log? Well there was a repeat performance another day, but this time I extracted my pound of flesh. That is as much as I dared to get close – besides she had my sympathies. Even I am camera shy 😀

drummer

Now for some music! You may find this photo familiar – I had posted a picture of his in Glimpses of Durga Puja. But if you remember, he was playing a single drum, while here he is seen beating two drums and the hazy picture is because he was spinning around at top speed. Quite a mesmerizing performance that he continued despite a bleeding ankle.

music

A music performance at a traditional Tamil wedding. The Nadaswaram, a double reed wind instrument is among the world’s loudest non-brass acoustic instruments. The Nadaswaram (in the center) is considered to be very auspicious and is the key musical instrument at weddings and temples across southern India. It is usually played in pairs accompanied by a pair of drums called thavil.

In the backdrop is the image of Natraja – the Lord of Dance and pretty much everything – God of the gods – Lord Shiva.

Do let me know if I passed and thanks for visiting 🙂
