Photographer's Note

this one is for frida (rhiannon) as she is in love with horses. in the ashram where i met all those naga sadhus ( see previous posts) there were also devotees who lead "normal" lives, most of whom happened to be villagers. this is primarily a rural area. one of the devotees is a rich landlord (very rustic). he has a lot of horses . i think they are of the "mehelwar" breed , because of the shape of their ears. these horses have been trained to dance to the tunes of the drums and other musical instruments. how ,,, they have been trained, i dont know(yet) , but i donot expect the method to be uncruel. these horses perform for the villagers.
anyway in the photograph there is this mare which is waiting for its turn to perform, while another horse is busy giving its performance and the crowd is looking on. the man closest to us is the handler of this horse, while the other one next to him is the owner of these horses.
this is a pretty common scene in the rural areas in india

edit: ive added a workshop (bad quality though) to show you another scene from this event

edit again(10-11-2004): have a look at another one from pakistan :)
same same , but different hehe
