If you are lucky, you will be able to spot someone in chattayum, mundum


Almost extinct, traditional outfit of the Kerala catholic woman known as chattayum mundum. It was more of an art to wear this, with the perfect frills behind known as njerry. The present generation do not use this. So, if you see someone with this dress, you are lucky, because you may not see another one during your entire trip and life itself. Before capturing a photo, either get their permission or take the risks associated with street photography.

It is a rarity these days to find women clad in that aatire.
