A standout Harvest Festival in Trichur, Kerala (held during Onam) beckoned. Accompanied by drums and jingles on brass belts (around waists) Teams of Puli's joyously dance their way around the circular maidan in town. Twice. (from 4pm till 10pm). Many emulating the stealthy hunting style of cats they represent. Competing for 'Best in Show'. Lots of "Save the Tiger" signs accompanied the Floats.
