This photo shows the puppet fire dance . Puppeteering is a very old indian art form. In days when there were no Cinemas and Television, these art form were popular medium of entertainment. The government of india has been using this art form untill recently to bring Awareness regarding AIDS and literacy among rustic indian folks .

This image amply displays the agility of the puppeteer.. whose fingers must have been moving so swiftly that the fire-horse became a motion blur... nice capture.. and thanks for the link to my post.
