Charak, originally uploaded by Samir D.

"charak" is the year ending festival of bengali people.. The festival is devoted to the deities Shiva and Sakti. Charak Puja starts with the fasting period. The devotees keep fasts for one complete month before performing the rituals. During this period the devotees live strictly on fruits and do their daily worship. The "Charak" is tied with a hook (Borshi) at his back and then he is moved round around a bar with a long rope. Charak Puja is one way to reach salvation, so is believed by these men and women.
