Blessed are people who are born in the serene lap of Himachal. Lucky are the ones who once get to savour the beauty of Himachal.

Himachal is extravagantly known for the beauty of nature, the enthralling pull it offers to our soul, the magnetism people habituated have within, the corruption minimization, and growth of educational and social prosperity.

A place that is well embedded with richness bestowed by nature is that place a soul can never abandon. After the joy followed by fun, we always need place that feels like home. A place that treats us like home.

The earth's lap where we can bury our worries and rejenuvate is a place we adore.

And then we see these adorable faces and innocent humans roaming around the place inviting us with infectious smile. That is how we fall in love with places we travel. When tenants embrace us and make us feel one among them.

The Potraj are nomads with a painfully daunting role in life. Worshippers of a goddess referred to as ‘Kadak Lakshmi’, they literally collect alms and whip themselves into existence. Their pain threshold built up over years of practice and persistence with some men starting to whip themselves from as early as six years old. Its a means of living but I can think of only a few things worse. @natgeotravel @canonaustralia #punekar @canonuk #canon #ausphotomag #dogsofinstagram #lovedogs #puneinstagrammers #puneigers #pune #mumbai #india #potraj #whip #whipping #pain #worship #religion #travel #travelgram

!! कडक लक्ष्मी!! The Potraj are a fast vanishing tribe that hail from the Western state of Maharashtra. They are worshipers of a goddess that is referred to as ‘Kadak Lakshmi’. The Potraj are nomads who get alms for displaying what must be an extremely grueling profession. The women balance a small platform with their deity perched on their heads and play a drum to a foot-tapping beat while the men dance, twirl and smack themselves with heavy whips made out of woven coir or leather. The whips may weigh in the region of 10 kg each and are knotted for added measure and land on the backs of these performers with a resounding ‘thwack’. Children are thrust into this profession at a very early age so that they may grow up and be able to bear the crack of the whip on their backs. Young boys may start as early as the age of six with lighter whips till they reach puberty and their teens and graduate to the heavier ones. Apart from the gruelling treks between cities, nights spent exposed to the elements, unrelenting sun above their heads the entire day and the unforgiving rope whip on their backs, the members end up living a hand to mouth existence on what can only be described as meager charity.

They say 'Beauty' lies in the eyes of the beholder. I say, not just beauty, but hope, faith, dreams, opportunities, confidence, fear - all things lies in the eyes. The world around us hugely depends on the way we look at things! Always try to find 'good' in everything - and the only way you will find it is by keeping a curious heart. You remember how curious you were as a child ? How you were eager to know everything about everything? Why are you not eager anymore?
Why don't you want to know things anymore? Embrace that long forgotten child within you! Make your Life a little more beautiful today.

"The whip of worship"

Photo taken at Pune Heritage photowalk.
A nomad potraj collecting alms by hitting himself with a whip and worshipping the 'kadak laxmi'. That 'whackt' sound of his whip is too loud, my ears were crackling. I don't believe in these things still he looked very innocent and struggling so I gave him ten rupees. It felt very good.

Potraj.
This man devoted his life to the goddess, says, “I will perform for her till the last inch of my body gives up.”
The male members of this community do not have to undergo any sort of ritual to start practicing this art. “We are born Potraj, and we die Potraj” he affirmed. “We dedicate our whole life to this, we were born to do this, this is what our fathers have taught us, and we have been doing this for twenty-one generations. But mine…mine will be the last,” he says.

I met this kid on road, shared my sketchbook with him and he immediately opened up. He shared his story, his family background and from where they all came to this city.
---------------------------------------------------
sometimes when we complete the artwork we discover an entirely different meaning in it.

Same is the story with this particular drawing.  Because First I made few quick sketches of this kid I met, then on the other side I made a detailed drawing. When I came home, I just realised that the entire spread has a meaning. Hope you all like It. Thanks Once again to all for your love support and kindness. Keep smiling!

Potraj 
Pothuraju is known as a guardian angel in many parts of India. Also known as Potraj a vanishing tribe from the western Maharashtra. They are worshipers of a goddess 'Kadak Lakshmi'.
Men in this tribe dance, twirl and smack themselves with heavy whips made out of coir. Ghungroos or bells in hands and feet combined with the 'Thwack' of 10 kg whip creates spine-chilling impact. Women usually carry the goddess on their head and play the drum while tapping a foot on trippy beats. Their eyes are sharp and fierce. They roam in various cities collecting alms to support their hand to mouth existence.
