Performance artist at the Kumbh Mela 2013 Hindu festival near Allahabad (India)

Boy in a traditional Indian performance consisting in spinning metal weights attached with ropes and forming a circle or wheel shape around a central handle. The balls attached to the ropes are heavy and the performer can get hurt if he makes any mistake.

Here are more photos of this performance.

I am sure these would look awesome at night if the balls were on fire.

If you know the name of this game of skill, please post a Comment.

Kumbh Mela is the largest festival on Earth, taking place once every 12 years, with more than 50 million Hindu pilgrims gathering to pray and bathe in the holy Ganges river.
