Each year, the village of Herobhanga (near Canning railway station) in West Bengal organizes Moichara cattle race festival, marking the arrival of monsoon season. It is usually celebrated during mid-June or early July, right when the local farmers begin to cultivate their lands. This photo was captured at the traditional bull racing event held at Canning this year.
