A devotee looks up as he performs during the annual Hindu religious festival of "Bonalu" in the southern Indian city of Hyderabad July 15, 2010. The word "Bonalu" is derived from the Telugu language word "Bhojanalu", the food offered to Goddess Kali, the Hindu goddess of power. The main ritual in the month-long festival consists of offering cooked rice, jaggery, curd, water and other dishes which are brought by women in earthen pots to be offered to Goddess Kali. Devotees believe that the offerings ward off evils and epidemics during monsoon.
