Based on the date (April 11, 2013), this may be Ugadi or Gudi Padwa, a celebration of the New Year's Day according to the lunisolar Hindu calendar.

If you can identify the exact name of the Festival or have more info about this ritual, please post a comment!

The Hindu priest of the village walks from a Temple to a nearby pond, over the shoulders of the young men of the village, while a group of older men beat drums with canes.

As soon as the priest has walked on the shoulders of a man, that man runs back to the front of the line and sits on the ground again.

The bare-foot Hindu priest will walk all the way to the pond without touching the ground, and the ceremony will continue near the water.
