Euphoria is medically recognized as a mental and emotional condition in which a person experiences intense feelings of well-being, elation, happiness, excitement, and joy.
These sadhus are smoking Cannabis... Cannabis is also known as marijuana. It is is often consumed for its psychoactive and physiological effects, which can include heightened mood or euphoria & relaxation...
By posting it, I am not provoking anyone to doing such... It is fatal.

This is for me a really interesting shot to view, for we do not witness such moments very often… and also the photographic quality of the double portrait is very good. Congrats.

Ce double portrait est bien fait, avec une très bonne ambiance créé par la fumée. De plus la fumée forme de très jolis dessins

Nice portrait of these sadhus as they are busy with pot in their chillum. I think the timing is excellent..the sadhu is taking a long drag out of the chillum and is slowly leaving the smoke. Super shot, like it a lot, makes me remember my college days in Jadavpur:-)

Wow! What a superb shot of this quite mystical scene! Perfectly observed and smartly composed scene with superb level of details and beautiful tones. Like it a lot!
Have a nice weekend!

an atmospheric and somewhat controversial image this. As usual you have captured the very essence of the subject matter and so beautifully detailed. The euphoria is evident in the faces and the sweet smell of the smoke almost palpable. Amazing imagery!
Have a great weekend - B.

Cela doit sentir la bonne herbe autour de ces deux hommes aux yeux plus que vitreux. Une manière d'oublier la pauvreté autour je suppose. Comme toujours les couleurs sont bien rendues.

This is a double portrait of a kind that is not so often seen here. I could have expected it to be a bit controversial but I didn't see any complaints. It's a delightful photo with very good colours and light and a very expressive cloud of smoke.

A great double portrait! One is eagerly waiting for his turn, and the other is yet to leave his one... nice timing. It is a rare photo of an 'unfortunate' sadhu with so many rings of luck-stones.
Very nice colors and clarity as usual.
You have very well kept the background dark to emphasize the smoke and cosiness.

Son regard montre qu'il est déjà ailleurs!l'effet créé par les volutes de fumée est très intéressant.

they seem really to appreciate their pipe and the smoke against the black background make this scene live.

The haze of smoke, the half-closed eyes tell the story so well Subhendu and the onlooker is obviously wondering when it is his turn for a puff. Super DL scene. Warm regards Rosemary

a very interesting and intense scene in a tight frame full of movement and smoke:) I like very much the way you cropped this candid portrait, both men are involved in the action, their faces are expressive and there's great interaction between them. I also like the way the bright light affects colours and textures. The smoke is extremely natural and its bluish tones are evocative. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

I always enjoy your portraits, and this one caught my eye with the added action, which for me, tells me something about the characters. Great.
