While in the middle of the procession, one naga looked at me and scratched his head !
Friends, thank you for the encouragement. This is the second set of photographs I took while inside, right in the middle of the Naga procession. Many friends asked me, why I had to sneak into the Naga procession to photograph them.. The police we shouting and lathi charging all people with or without a camera. One of the Police shouted at me “Please matlab hato!” (Yes, what ever that meant) but I managed to make good terms with a lady police officer. One senior police took me to the starting of the street and asked me to photograph from there. Now that I am mad and if you happen to know me, you shall know how I am.. I decided to sneak into it and feel how it is like to be one of them, with ashes on my body, running and roaring “Har Har Mahadev”. And yes, photographying them as well.

Photographying them while they were running roaring “Har Har Mahadev”, and yes ! Dodging the Police at the same time, isn’t an easy job. But it was fun. © anirban saha . com
