Cranganore, 16.01.2009

After doing a small search on the internet while in Kochi, I discovered that there was a festival in a nearby town. Along with elephants and the standard stuff, I found a small fun fair. The lady in the first photo is “Naga Rani”, the “Snake Queen”. Trivially, a woman is sitting under a table and her head is popping up. A fake snake is attached to her head. Under the table there is a mirror, so you have the impression to see through it. The trick is so easy that I was amazed how no one would see it. It’s how I discovered that faith and will are intertwined, if you want to believe you will.

An alternative to western rational thinking. I’m not sure I could live with it, but it makes people happy.
