6 JUNE 2010 Makkaraparamba, Malappuram dist.
10 Banner series!
On my way to Malappuram, I saw this wonderful set of banners, ten of them at a junction. The place was a small town named Makkaraparamba. There were banners for Brazil, Argentina, Holland, Italy, North Korea, France, England, Portugal, Spain and Germany. So, as usual, I started taking pictures of the banners, by which time some students from a nearby high school gathered around me and was curious to know what I was doing. As usual I started chatting with the kids about the World Cup celebration. This was the first time I had seen such a long banner series, and during the talk, one kid told me that somewhere near Kottakkal, another town in Malappuram dist, there was a series of 32 banners, a banner each for all World Cup football finalists!
