Oarsmen singing at the Vallasadya

Vallasadya is hosted by families at the Aranmula, Parthasarathi temple in Kerala. Different snakeboats arrive with the entire crew of oarsmen. They are then fed a splendid meal where they sing and ask for different items. More than 100 items are prepared for this meal as the hosts don't know what the oarsmen may demand and they cannot leave unhappy.
