Shooting what nobody shoots
Marriammen Feast Juhu Beach.

I was invited by Velu the head priest Marriammen Temple Nehru Nagar Juhu and my friend Bhiman Devendra .

I could not attend the morning rituals of pongal cooking and animal slaughter.

I went to Juhu Beach at 5 pm to shoot the cheek piercings and hooks inserted in the backs of the devotees that pull cars tempo rickshah and 9 motorcycles they also hang from cranes.

After the procession reaches the Nehru temple of the goddess the hooks and rods pierced in the cheeks are removed.

Lime clusters are hung from the arms and backs on needles inserted in the flesh.

Than there is the cage where 110 Rods are inserted in the body.

All this is done to appease Goddess Marriammen Goddess of Fertility.. And Small Pox remover.

I have been shooting this festival for a long time the guy in the picture will pull a car with hooks in the back and a 18 feet rod in the mouth.
