It is said that Sri Krishna took the female form of Mohini to marry Aravan for fullfilling Aravan's last wish who was to be sacrificed before the Mahabharata war for the victory of Pandavas.The small hamlet of Koovagam is present in the Vizhuppuram district of Tamil Nadu, making it virtually just another point on the map. However, once a year this tiny village turns into the biggest camp for transgenders from all over the country. They gather in flocks to take part in the rituals of a festival which lasts for 18 days, culminating on Chithira Pournami (April-May). A festival which has its traditions rooted in the very depths of the Mahabharatha war, Krishna’s cunningness and the noble nature of a very valiant young man.

DEEP INTO YOUR EYES!
Shot during the Worldwide Instameet organised by @chefyash. This photo has a really cute story behind it. It was time to wrap up when everyone's eyes saw this child who climbed up a pole and was not ready to come down. That set in a great picture composition. Finally after many failed attempts everyone ignored him so that he comes down and he did!
I hope you remember those attempts😁 @sadak_chap and @overrated_outcast
