The Great Indian Entertainment Show


Location: Teghra, Begusarai, Bihar

Rural India, a place where people don’t have many means of entertainment. There are no game parks, no movie theaters, no television or other venues. Basic entertainment avenues may be either some games, a swim in the river etc. That too doesn’t include women. For them its just chatting with their mates.

But here comes festive occasions, when with prayers and worshiping there is also the “Great Indian Entertainment Show”. These are the occasions when people come out of their homes in large numbers, walk 10s of miles to visit these venues of these fairs. These places offer all kinds of stuff which we will see in the further pictures.

It is important to point out here that these areas reel under severe power shortage but during such occasions special provisions are made by installing diesel generator sets(lot of pollution).
