Photo Feature – Moichara Cattle Race Festival West Bengal

-

Author – Dipjoy Roy

Each year, the village of Herobhanga (near Canning railway station) in West Bengal organizes Moichara cattle race festival, marking the arrival of monsoon season. It is usually celebrated during mid-June or early July, right when the local farmers begin to cultivate their lands.

These photos were captured at the traditional bull racing event held at Canning this year.
