    A very interesting read. I had been totally unaware that such things occurred in India.

    • Having only written fourteen words in this post, I presume the “very interesting read” referred to my link!
      The Snake Boat Race is a big annual event here. In fact, it was staged six days ago .( I took the picture last week.)
