Photographer's Note

The festival of Charak is a feast of sights, sounds and old traditions. Some parts of Bangal go back by several decades. Predominantly a religious festival related to the myth of the Hindu God Shiva, devotees undergo a month-long series of rituals that end on the last day of the Bengali calender, the Chaitra Sankranti.

Devotees smoke on the chillum before performing the spectacular show.
