Horses Compete at Chaubari

Kartik Poornima is a holy occasion for Hindus in India. According to the Hindu Mythology this is considered to be the day of Lord Shiva, Lord Brahma, Lord Vishnu, Lord Angira and Lord Sun. There is a tradition to take bath in the holy river, Ganga on this particular day. This festival is celebrated at Chaubari Village of District Bareilly of Western U.P (India) annually at grand level. This village is situated very close to the river Ramganga. A big fair takes place at Chaubari on the occasion of Kartik Poornima. A number of activities take place in this fair. Horse race is one of them. In fact this race is a type of demonstration of the ability of horses. The horse-sellers come to this fair from different parts of the region. They try their best to show the skills of their horses. The buyers watch the race attentively and the horses which are found best are sold at high prices. Like previous years, this year also the fair was organised with enthusiasm. Horse-race was the center of attraction for visitors.
(The images of this event, presented here, were taken with a Nikon D-90 camera at shutter speed priority mode (at 1/1000 sec.). The lens was 18-105 mm (Nikon). ISO of the camera was set at 500.)
