A Blessed Soul: A number of old Dasayyas spend the day near the kalyani at Melukote, which is a well-known place in South Karnataka. Dasayyas are men with huge trumpets, shankas and colorful namaas who bless people and sing praises of God. If you hear loud trumpet sounds, don't be alarmed! The dassayas are just doing their job. In this critical situation, they never stopped working and blessing people. This shot was taken at Melukote, Karnataka, India, in 2020." - Light Rays Photography
