Rath-Yatra 2013 At Nalikul

Rath-Yatra is not only the custom of Puri, Mahesh or any big cities,
it is the tradition of centuries that remain within the lifestyle of
rural Bengal. I observed the Rath-Yatra of Nalikul, one of the oldest
area of Hooghly district, where the main profession of common people
is cultivation. And as usual they observe traditional festivals
earnestly. Rath-Yatra is one of them.
