This Bangladeshi festival looks like nothing you have ever seen.
Ata Mohammad Adnan (@aadnan) is a photographer based in Bangladesh. He shared his photos about Charak Puja, a Bangladeshi festival of penance.
Charak Puja (also known as Nil Puja) is a Hindu folk festival, held in southern Bangladesh and West Bengal on the last day of the month of Chaitra (in Bengali calendars called Choitro).
People believe that the festival will carry prosperity by eliminating the sorrow and sufferings of the previous year. The festival is actually a festival to satisfy “Lord Shiva”, the great “Debadideb” of Hindu Religion. Though the festival takes place on the mid night of Chaitra Songkranti, the preparation phase usually starts before one month of the day.

The Philosophy of Travel is a lush cloth-bound hardcover ode to the spirit of exploration, that drive that takes us into the desert, and into ourselves.
A journey of discovery, of freedom, it explores what lies beneath, the hidden ley lines that draw us around this vast continent and the connection with the land that resonates deeply within all of us.
As a much younger man, Carlisle Rogers fell in love with Australia while on holidays from the United States, travelling the east coast in a banged up 4WD full of surfboards.

With over 15 years of experience as a journalist and photographer, Carlisle has written and photographed for some of Australia’s most prestigious newspapers and magazines including: The Age, Sydney Morning Herald, Rolling Stone, Australian Geographic and RM Williams Outback magazine.
