As i said earlier, Charak is a local rural festival of bengal where people worship lord shiva but in an unconventional way. They pierce their back with this hooks and hang themselves from a pole by a rope attached to these hooks.

Its a very strong documentary of a local tradition, which seems very brutal and pointless from my point of view. Anyhow, he is a grown up man...and from a photographer's point of view this picture is stunning.

Hello there! What a great picture! Interesting, lots of action, sharp where it should be, but showing mobements too. Great choice to use B+W. Perfect framing, near enough to focus on the hook. Well seen and well done! Great job, like it a lot. Cheers
