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.
