Chained or Freed!

This photograph was taken at Lalon's shrine. Fakir Lalon Shai was a prominent Bengali philosopher. Every year during the Lalon festival people from every corner of Bangladesh visit there to feel the sanity of that place. Artists perform with Lalon's written songs all the night long, and thousands of people listen to them sitting on a field. While many others, who call themselves to be devoted to Him, lights up the place with their own methods. Some get themselves chained or get crazy attires, who actually think themselves to be free from all bindings.
