Photographer's Note

Festival of 'MOI CHHARA' is a local rural festival of Bengal performed and participated by farmers where they stand on a plank of wood-'the moi'-attached to two bulls and a pair races each other.
It is done before the start of cultivation of rice during the monsoon. The festival is a symbolic representation of the way a farmer farms his land and makes the land adequate for farming.
