cultured

This festival celebrates the exorcism of the mythical demon Ghantakarna. It is celebrated by acting out the legendary drama in the streets. Children from collect money from passerby, which is then used to make an effigy of the demon. While this effigy remains in the center of a rough tent-like structure erected from bamboo poles, one man impersonates Ghantakarna by smearing himself with paint and roaming the streets with a begging bowl asking for donations.
