COOL EXPERIENCE

COOL EXPERIENCE – The photograph was taken at Mutharamman Temple near Tiruchendur in the state of Tamil Nadu, India. The man was a devotee attending Dusshera Festival in this temple. He has painted his body with the colour ‘RED’. He holds a bowl with fire and another devotee kept his hand over the fire for a roasting experience. This is a reaction of too much alcohol.
