Gajan
Featured in Canon-India,editorial favorite Nat Geo,LensCulture,Exhibit in University of Waterloo (Canada), Belgrade Photo Month (Serbia) exhibition.
"Gajan" is performed during the day long celebration of Chaitra Sankranti (precious moment). On the eve of the day; devotees demonstrate their ability to endure extreme pain and discomfort by piercing their bodies with sharp objects Gajan is actually linked to persons who are related to agricultural community, directly or indirectly. They pray for the rains and better harvest. Lord Shiva is said to be closely related to this community. Here a devote is resting after performing special kinds of wacky dance. It's my dream and challenging project also because nothing was premeditated and huge problem in light. The photo was taken at 1.48 AM.
