The finishing touch
I captured the moment when a devotee of Gajan festival was taking a makeup for Goddess Parvati . Parvati is the wife of "Lord Shiva” of Hindu Religion. This festival is actually linked to agricultural community, directly or indirectly. They pray for the rains and better harvest. Here the devotees have a faith that if he or she makeup like any God or Goddess and beg some foods from local people then "Lord Shiva” help them to solve their family problem .
