14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
Special one

In fact, moving around the villages of Bengal is always rewarding.There are are several celebrations,maintaining the culture year after year.Time changes but their respect to to the culture don't.Here in a village I found this boy encircling along the floor of a Goddess Sitala"s temple.In local term this act of devotion is called 'Dandi'.I found him in action for more than 1 hour. What an instance of faith & dedication !The surrounding him are waiting for final worship.
