And there were a lot of interesting moments to capture.

Someone caught me red handed

While someone was completely unaware

And followers following Sadhu

But the most interesting part was to capture the Naga sadhus.

And they all gave me a wonderful experience to cherish.

[PS : I have deliberately used the term Sadhu which means renunciates who seeks nothing but liberation/Nirvana/Moksha. These pictures represents only a very small part of sadhus to come to any conclusions.]

Interesting series and great shot selection. I can only imagine what the crowd must have looked like, and the noise and atmosphere.
