Photographer's Note

Charak is a local rural festival of west bengal where people worship lord shiva. But this is done in an unconventional way. People,particularly the Gajan Sanyasi's believe they are possessed by lord shiva on this particular day. These men hang themselves from hooks and pierces their body in order to show their respect for the lord.
