portrait of a Naga

I visited Allahabad to photograph the nagas at Kumbh mela - the largest gathering of humans on the planet. It was a surreal experience and also difficult than i anticipated. Naga sadhus are knows to be very violent and so getting closer to photograph them was a challenge. I was shoved away overtime i tried getting closer or tried chatting up. There was a moment later in the day when i managed to squeeze in the procession as the nagas walked towards the river and managed to get an interesting sketch of nagas.
