Kanwariyas,these people dressed in Orange travel more than 250Km by walking without shoes carrying back water from holy Gangese to their respective villages/towns. These guys follow lord Shiva (huge statute in the background). Please notice the small water bottles tied around waist and neck which is not suppose to touch the ground through this long walk.

When I was in your country, I was lucky to see traditional festivals, Varanasi only I could see a riverside ritual.
Superb portrait, well composed with excellent color and detail.
