Mysore | A Gorava | Flickr - Photo Sharing!
I met this person at Chamundi Hills, Mysore (South India). Gorava or Kuruba or Kuruma is a sub caste of shepherds who tend sheep and weave wool blankets. The priests among Kurubas are known as Goravas. They dedicate one male member to the god Srisaila Mallikarjuna when he grows up he is initiated into the Moilara cult by a Ganachari and trained in the lore ritualistic music and dance by a senior Gorava. They put on a long black coat made out of sheep wool with white strips, a big triangular jar cap made out of bear's skin. One upper cloth hanging from both shoulders, another cloth serving as a waist band. A bag made of deer skin containing the sacred turmeric called Bandaru to be offered to the devotees, a brass cup tied to the waist for drinking milk or pancamritam. They wear strings of cowries around their necks, tie jingling bells to their ankles. They hold a damaru in the right hand and a flute in the left hand.
