My India. Festival of Bonalu

India celebrates a number of festivals throughout the year. While few festivals are celebrated with equal zeal and enthusiasm across the country others are restricted to a particular state or area. One among them is Bonalu, an annual festival observed in the state of Telangana, mainly in its twin cities, Hyderabad and Secunderabad. Though the festival is observed with immense enthusiasm every year but this year, amid the pandemic, the festive spirit was quite low.

Decked in traditional attires and carrying Bonalu on their head, women in Hyderabad city of Telangana thronged to various temples of Goddess Mahakali to celebrate the most auspicious Bonalu festival.
