Q: Story of the week

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

"Gajan", is a piercing festival to Lord Siva and especially the Hindu dieties who are “Stars in His Crown”.This is considered the purest of gifts the offering of one’s own body pierced with spears, skewers or hooks as it delivers the gift. This moment framed when a 12 years old tribal child was getting ready for the festival.
