13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Celebrations in its way

During "Bandhna" festival at Purulia, children are enganged in fun & frolic with fire crackers. "Bandhna" is a festival which is besically a post harvest festival among the "Santal" tribe. They paint the houses' walls with free hand painting. The fire crackers lighted by them are given by us (during our visit) as they can not afford to by such costly thing. We certainly enjoy their smilng faces after having such gifts.
