VALLAM KALI

During the autumn monsoon season, the beautiful south Indian state of Kerala comes alive with colorful “snake boat” races held in the remote backwaters of the watery Kuttanad region. In this celebratory story centered around an ancient royal sporting tradition of racing war boats, Sunil Kumar, who hails from a long line of prominent boat captains, strategically prepares to race his team for their village’s glory in the ancient tradition of “Vallam Kali”(meaning “Snake Boat Race”), carrying on 400 years of rich regional cultural heritage.
