Photographer's Note

I was sitting in my balcony and saw this person walking down the streets along with the decorated bull. It is a usual site across india to see these people around a festival of farmers called as Pola. Pola traditionally is celebrated by Farmers when they decorate their bulls ( as farmers used to depend on bulls for their living and hence were precious to them ).
However, Pola was no where near ! I enquired and came to know that in Southern India, these people were called as Haridas. In olden days, these people used to sing devotional songs and also used to be entertainment for children : In return would take whatever money people would give them !
