Spotting with sword

During the festival of Muharram young boys perform various tricks with swords. Pieces of potatoes are kept on the forehead and stomach of a boy lying on the street and the other boy, blindfolded, tries to find him on the street and once located, tries to spot the pieces of potatoes with the sword.
