Just came from Gangasagar Fair & shot it there...Gangasagar Mela(fair) is the largest fair celebrated in West Bengal (INDIA)and the photographer"s heaven also. This fair is held where the Ganga and the Bay of Bengal form a nexus. Hence the name Gangasagar Mela. This festival is celebrated during January every year and is a major attraction for millions of pilgrims from all over India.
The pilgrims come for a holy dip on Makar Sankranti (last day of the Bengali Month) Magha -Mid January. They take dips in the Ganges and offer water to the Sun God. The dip, as they say, purifies their 'self' and according to them, 'punya' can be obtained thus. When they are done with the ritual obligations, they head towards the Kapilmuni Temple situated nearby, to worship the deity as a mark of respect......

Mysterious woman, but nice picture, because you have only 2 colors, the sharp red bursting on the grey blurred background!
