Photographer's Note

Charak is a festival of Bengal, a Hindu festival performed during the last days of the month of Chaitra.
The festival includes spectacular performances by people practicing the faith for those few days.

In this shot, a young man prepares to be hung from a pole, while ropes are tied to his body. He will be swinging from that rope and whirled around to show off his faith.

More on this festival in Banglapedia: see here.
