Photographer's Note

Other than 'Boul's, 'Fakir's also attend the Kenduli fair. Those are interestingly radical Muslim community, who don't adhere the 'sariyati' doctrine of Fundamentalists.They are usually rebels against orthodox practices and social institutions. The reason of that is purely spiritual : they are continuously searching for Adhar Manush, the " Essential Man ", the inner being which is inside of each human body. This humanist philosophy enraged the frantic even 'Fakir's have experienced the wrath of fundamentalists physically.
The Fakir's are nonconformist, disciple of Lalon Fakir who rejected the traditional social norms to form a distinct sect that upheld music as their religion.
To define those beautiful human being, I think I have to recall the song
With no direction home
Like a complete unknown
Like a rolling stone
