Sleep to Listen or Listen to Sleep!

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. In all those hue and cry, people also sleeps! They sleep peacefully even though a loud music been played all the time.
