Though It is banned in India to use the monekeys or any other wild animals to be used at circus or any other commercial purposes.still it is a common scene of using those little creatures for earning breads.The owner of the creature resisdes in Patna, Bihar and come to the remote village named Mohubuna of Birbhum,West Bengal.
I gave him rupees ten for the play and the villagers gave some rices but no money. Another shot of giving rice in WS>
Hope u like the shot.

Yep, I can understand the ban of use of Monkeys for any sort of circus as Monkey holds some religious values in "Hinduism", but even then, the poor people who have to live for their bread and butter, they find some ways for earning the money with the help of this animal, last year I also captured the same scene but in a different style, when both the owner and monkey, they were taking rest and enjoying the Ice cream.
nice picture, and well done

masterly composition !
we can see that is a some kind of entertaiment for people ...
But this string from one side with hand and other side with monkey it's so metaphore
This photo is one from these which we can't forget about long time after watching it .
well welll done

I like the composition of this, and in particular I like the hand coming into the frame from the side, and the rope which guides our attention. The string of childred in the background looking on is another great aspect of this. Great shot!

I am not happy about the monkey but quite happy about your POV. Excellent composotion showing us the scene and it is quite good that the arm stays against a clear background, and starts from the lower right corner. I like ths shot Partha -
