Photographer's Note

Village-Fetival.In my place once a year people celebrate the village festival day, the above event is called Mouth-Lock where people pearce a thin copper wire on both side of the chin in belief for the well being of the family members and unmarried girsl perform the same in belief to get good husband. people will not talk the entire day and will be fasting. In the evening all the people assemble at the village temple where they perform the pooja after which the priest sprinkles the holy water on the people after which the mouth-lock is removed.
Seeing this is a painfull act, i am not sure how much pain the people will go through during the act.
