Hindu Religious believe "Lord Shiva" consumed the poison "Halahala" that originated from the sea during the Samudramanthan [Churning the Milky Ocean]. Shiva swallowed the poison in an act of self-sacrifice. Thus the poison was stuck in Shiva's throat with nowhere to go, and it was so potent that it changed the color of Shiva's neck to blue. For this reason, he is also called Nilakanta (the blue-throated one]. Similarly for a day these people from a remote village of West Bengal paint their faces & neck with colour of blue and perform rituals to pay homage to Lord Shiva.
