I had taken this snap during the South Indian festival "Velu Murugan". This festival is characterized by devotees, who had asked "Mannat", pierce their bodies 108 times with hooks.
I look at this picture of a young boy, who was one of the devotees... and time and again, I keep on wondering, whether it is fear showing on his face, which he is trying to hide, or is it plain anxiety.... or is he just flowing with the mood of other people who were kind of acting hyper as if they were "possessed" by the diety ?!
