Photographer's comments:

"Rakher Upobash is a famous Hindu religious festival of lights, faith and devotion. Every year thousands of Hindu devotees gather in front of Shri Lokenath Brahmachari Ashram in Barodi, Bangladesh. Devotees attend prayer with burning incense and light oil lamps before break fasting. Both men and women participate in this festival equally. Lights of diyas, smoke from dhunachi and the spiritual rhythm of devotees creates breath-taking ambiance like a dream."
