„Naga's Court“

from the gallery of Prateek Dubey

The ash smeared holy man is called a Naga Sadhu. Nagas live completely naked and some even smear ashes from burnt corpses. It is to remind oneself of the reality of death in the whole existence and its real presence in our lives. It requires a lot of conviction and self restraint to live like this in all seasons, so such people are highly revered in India.
