Old and Young
-- age is no barrier for performances like these. Not for veterans like him, surrounded by a bunch of successors in their prime. For them, age is just a number, defined by the number of wrinkles, or the number of grey hair. Age is not at all a barrier tbat deters his Will, guts and strong determination to complete the task. Playing a drum called 'Tammettama' and parading the streets for a little over 3 hours, 10 days in a row.. doesn't seem to daunt him, one bit. They would, in fact join the procession, year after year, until their shoulders can no longer carry the heavy drum, or their hands can no longer keep up with the rhythm, or their feet can no longer keep up with the young feets, night after night.. along the chilly streets.
